Lost & Found

Losing a family pet can be a very scary and sad time. We’re here to help at the Animal Shelter. If you’ve lost your pet, there are several things to do. Checking with neighbors is a great first step and if that doesn’t help, checking with us is also a good idea. If your pet is microchipped you can get in touch with the microchipping company. There are also many communities on Facebook and other social media outlets that can be used to post about your missing pet. If all else fails, reach out to us and we’ll do all we can to assist you! 

Mosquito Control

Citizens of White Settlement can take the fight to mosquitoes and the diseases they carry by eliminating their breeding sites. Citizens are encouraged to take the following actions to control mosquitoes on your property: 

  • Regularly empty any water from old tires, cans, bottles, buckets, drums and other containers 
  • Empty plastic pools regularly and store them indoors when not in use
  • Repair leaky pipes and outside hoses/faucets
  • Change water in birdbaths at least twice a week
  • Empty and replace outdoor pets' watering bowls daily
  • Regularly clean out roof gutters

Anyone who has larger areas of standing water on their property can purchase mosquito dunks at home improvement stores. The product is appropriate for use by residents living near larger areas of standing water that cannot be drained and are highly vegetated. The product comes in tablets or donut shaped discs and contains a natural killer of mosquito larvae called BTi. For treatment, the tablets or donut shaped discs are placed in the standing water.

Even when taking these proactive steps, it is usually impossible to totally eliminate mosquitoes. Citizens can further guard against mosquitoes in the following ways:

  • Stay indoors at dawn, dusk, and in the early evening.
  • Wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants whenever you are outdoors.
  • Spray clothing with repellents containing permethrin or DEET since mosquitoes may bite through thin clothing.
  • Apply insect repellent sparingly to exposed skin. An effective repellent will contain 35% DEET. DEET in high concentrations (greater than 35%) provides no additional protection.

Please remember to thoroughly research insect repellents prior to use. Whenever you use an insecticide or insect repellent, read and follow the manufacturer's DIRECTIONS FOR USE, as printed on the product. Repellents may irritate the eyes and mouth, so avoid applying repellent to the hands of children.
