Why doesn't The Woodlands spray for mosquitoes?
For mosquito abatement, South Montgomery County / The Woodlands area practices Integrated Mosquito Management as recommended by the Texas Department of State Health Services and Texas A & M Mosquito Research Lab. The step-by-step involves:
  1. Surveillance by sampling

  2. Reduction of breeding sites

  3. Biological controls

  4. Chemical controls when disease is present, including larvicides and targeted spraying for adult mosquitoes

  5. Personal protective measures including repellents
Just like overuse of antibiotics produces super bacteria, overuse of pesticides creates resistant strains of mosquitoes.
