Mosquito Control


The first line of defense against mosquito-borne illness is to check your outdoor surroundings for suitable mosquito breeding grounds. Old tires, upright containers or anything that might hold runoff water for more than a week should be removed or corrected. The Colony is actively working in conjunction with the Denton County Health Emergency Alert Response Team to educate the public on the facts about mosquito-borne illnesses and how to best protect yourself and the community from these little pests.
