We knew the rains would bring some pesky visitors and it seems as if they are taking no time in blanketing the area. 

Viewers have sent in many photos and videos of scourges of mosquitoes on patios, in cars, and covering livestock.  

The city says they are doing what they can to control the mosquito population. Vector control crews are working 12-hour weekend shifts to treat standing water around the city with larvicide. 

The city says more than 40 traps have been set around town to help determine which areas have the highest concentration of the pests. 

If you wish to report an address that appears abandoned with high grass, tires, and/or standing water, please email animalcaredispatch@cctexas.com.

Make sure to include the address, the problem, and a phone number if you wished to be contacted. You can also upload pictures if you wish.
