Preventing an Infestation
Because of the health risks to humans, pets and plant life, the City of Sherman does not spray for mosquitoes. Instead of spraying, the city believes residents can make a larger impact by learning how to prevent mosquito populations in the first place. The City of Sherman wants to educate residents on how they can prevent mosquito infestations around their home.
Always remember these tips for protection against mosquitoes:
Drain all standing water
Dress in light-colored, long sleeve clothing when outdoors
Defend by using mosquito repellants that contain deet
Avoid outdoor activities during dusk or dawn, when mosquitoes are most active
