Mosquito Spraying
Mosquito The mosquito season is weather-related and usually starts when the weather gets warmer and the rainy season arrives around April and can last up until December. The mosquito control program consists of adulticiding (spraying / fogging), larvaciding (spraying standing water) and implements the fogging according to mosquito population levels, which will be light, medium and heavy. 

  • On light population levels, the city gets sprayed every weekend on Friday and Saturday evenings (weather permitting).
  • On medium population levels, the city gets sprayed three to five consecutive times a week (weather permitting).
  • On heavy population levels, the city gets sprayed seven consecutive times a week (weather permitting).

The City of Seabrook has one of the most aggressive mosquito control programs in Harris County and will continue to make every effort to protect the publics health.

It is very important for residents to take additional measures to avoid bites and help reduce the mosquito population.

  • Avoid being outdoors at dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are more active
  • Wear clothing that covers most of your skin
  • Use repellents, specifically ones that contain DEET
  • Check around your home to rid areas of standing water, which is where mosquitoes can lay their eggs.
  • Keep weeds and grass cut

It usually takes ten days following a plentiful rain for mosquito larvae to develop into mosquitos.
