The control of the mosquito involves a three phase integrated program: 1) source reduction; 2) larvaciding and 3) adulticiding.

The best way to control the pest is to eliminate their water habitat. It takes very little water for a mosquito to grow and develop.

At that time a previous administration put in a request to TxDOT to trim the trees to prevent a reoccurrence. Instead of trimming the trees, TxDOT made the decision to remove the line of trees instead.
