Mosquito Management in the Woodlands used a step-by-step approach endorsed by Centers for Disease Control, Texas Department of State Health Services and Texas Mosquito Control Association employs:
- Surveillance by sampling—trapping and testing mosquitoes for disease.
- Reduction of mosquito breeding sites.
- Biological controls.
- Chemical treatment when disease is present
- Public education to advise of personal protective measures.
The Woodlands Township provides ongoing surveillance through placement of Mosquito traps throughout the community. When disease is identified in the mosquito population Montgomery County (precinct 3 for Panther Creek) applies biological controls and/or chemical treatments according to their respective program protocols.
