News From Harlingen, Texas
HARLINGEN, Texas– Mosquito spraying continues this week, now that the rain has stopped. The recent rains helped the drought situation but also created some pesky little biters. The City of Harlingen’s Environmental Health Department has already sprayed the entire City once and will do so again this week. But we must all do our part by making sure there is no standing water in our yards.
As a reminder mosquitoes like to play hide and seek and will hide in tall grass while they await their next meal. It’s important to cut the grass and turn over any standing water that could be serving as a breeding site for them such as pet bowls, flower pots, tires, and anything else that can hold even a tiny drop of water.
To keep mosquitoes from breeding on your property you can also do the following.
Mosquitoes can breed in three days in as little as one drop of water so check your property for standing water regularly. Don’t give them a biting chance.
Meantime, the Health Department will spray the City again this week. Please refer to the spraying schedule to find out what day your area will be sprayed. The spraying is done at dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active.
For more information about mosquito control contact the Harlingen Health Department at (956) 216-5220.
