[ARCHIVED] City asks citizens to aid in mosquito prevention efforts

The City of Midland is encouraging the community to aid in mosquito prevention efforts by clearing standing water and maintaining weeds, tall grass, and bushes on private properties.

The City of Midland’s Parks and Recreation Department is working to treat public areas for these pesky insects, but Midlanders are encouraged to apply the same practices to their homes and places of business.

Tips for preventing mosquito habitats include:

  • Eliminate any standing water that collects on your property including rain gutters, old tires, buckets, plastic covers, toys, or any other container where mosquitoes can breed.
  • Clean and chlorinate swimming pools, outdoor saunas, and hot tubs. If not in use, keep them empty and covered.
  • Change the water in bird baths, fountains, wading pools, rain barrels, and potted plant trays at least once a week to destroy potential mosquito habitats
  • Repair or replace all screens in your home that have tears or holes.
  • Remind or help neighbors to eliminate mosquito-breeding sites on their properties.
  • Report grass and weeds that have grown taller than 18 inches by calling Code Compliance at 432-685-7410 or using the “Report a Concern” module at
