Mosquito season reminders!
It's mosquito season again ... and the City of Fort Worth is offering two free "mosquito dunks" for any standing water you may have in your yards in the form of birdbaths, ponds, flower pots, etc.
The City of Fort Worth Code Compliance Department is providing free mosquito dunks to Fort Worth residents to help control mosquito populations around their home and fight mosquito viruses.
Each household will be provided one free package of two dunks that can be picked up from the City of Fort Worth Consumer Health Office, 818 Missouri Avenue, Fort Worth, Texas 76104. Residents must show proof of residency such as a utility bill or driver’s license. Residents should follow the product label instructions.
Mosquito dunks can be picked up Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. while supplies last.
The dunks are small tablets comprised of an environmentally-safe larvicide that targets and eliminates mosquito larvae when placed in standing water. All mosquitoes need to reproduce is a small amount of standing water.
Place the dunks where standing water can collect such as flower pots, air-conditioning units, stagnant pond and even gutters. It’s extremely important that our community continue to work together to reduce the mosquito population!
