Let's Fight the Bite Together!
Mosquito control in Sugar Land requires participation on the part of both the city and its residents. Don't give mosquitoes a biting chance! Take these simple steps:
- WEAR long sleeves and pants. Create a barrier to mosquito bites by covering up.
- APPLY insect repellent. Use EPA-registered repellent.
- REMOVE standing water. Emptying out water that accumulates in toys, tires, trash cans, buckets, clogged rain gutters and plant pots will deny mosquitoes a place to lay their eggs and reproduce.
