Free mosquito dunks are available to Fort Worth residents to help control mosquito populations and to fight mosquito-borne viruses.
The Code Compliance Department is providing dunks, which are small tablets of an environmentally safe larvicide that targets and eliminates mosquito larvae when placed in standing water.
All mosquitoes need to reproduce is a small amount of standing water. Residents should place the dunks where standing water can collect — in places like flower pots, air conditioning units, stagnant ponds, empty containers and gutters.
Each household will be provided two free packages of dunks that can be picked up from the Consumer Health Office inside the Hazel Harvey Peace Center for Neighborhoods, 818 Missouri Ave. Residents must show proof of residency, such as a utility bill or driver license. The product is not for resale and residents should follow the product label.
Mosquito dunks can be picked up 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday. Dunks will be given on a first-come, first-served basis. Dunks are also available for purchase at local hardware stores.
