Woodlands Township urges residents to check for standing water
Due to recent rains, The Woodlands Township is urging residents to check their property for standing water and empty containers of water to prevent mosquitoes.
Mosquitoes have been active in the region this summer, with the Texas Department of Health Services reporting that 37 pools of mosquitoes have tested positive for the West Nile virus.
Areas that can't be drained should be treated with mosquito dunks or bits, which are available at home and garden centers.
Residents are reminded to wear repellent, eliminate breeding sites and treat what cannot drain when mosquitoes become a problem.
