Mosquito Spraying to Begin in October

During the monthly Levee Improvement District 15 (LID 15) meeting, the directors approved periodic mosquito spraying to begin in October. The vote was unanimous.

While this is not a required activity of the LID, the board believed that it was an action within their purview due to mosquito development from LID 15’s drainage and water detention facilities.

The board opted for a monthly relationship with BUGCO Pest Control (Richmond, TX). This is the same company that sprayed after Hurricane Harvey. The spraying will take place weekly in October; then the board will decide each month as to the need. As the weather cools, mosquitos are less frequent.
