University Park follows accepted IPM (Integrated Pest Management) guidelines consisting of monitoring, trapping, larviciding, and adulticiding. To target mosquitoes during peak daily activity, protect beneficial insects and limit exposure for outdoor pets and residents who have sensitivities, fogging is conducted during overnight hours. Mosquito control efforts generally run from April to October.
The Park Cities are known for lushly landscaped yards, beautiful tree cover, and many streams and ponds. These elements provide breeding areas for mosquitoes. Mosquitoes are not only a nuisance but can also pose a threat to public health. The biggest concern of potential mosquito-borne diseases is the West Nile virus.
