Mosquito sample results for the City of Saginaw are found to be negative for West Nile Virus and St. Louis Encephalitis Virus for three consecutive months. Saginaw partners with the Vector Control program offered by the Tarrant County Health Department. Mosquito traps are placed in various locations around the city. The trapped mosquitoes are submitted to the North Texas Regional Laboratory for species identification and testing. Saginaw conducts mosquito trapping and sampling for the duration of mosquito season which is typically April until the end of October.
To control mosquito population city staff treats areas containing standing water with sustained release larvicide. Here are some things you can do around your house to prevent mosquitoes from breeding. Start by getting rid of places where mosquitoes can breed and get the whole family involved by conducting a back yard inspection.
