Environmental Health Division
About
The Environmental Health Division protects public health by monitoring all food facilities, providing education, and addressing environmental concerns that impact public health such as mosquito control.

Mosquito Control Update
The City of Allen Environmental Health Division is working with Collin County Health Care Services and other surrounding municipalities regarding the mosquito season and related mosquito control activities. Effective May 1, the Environmental Health Division begins enhanced response efforts to include mosquito trapping to identify species and to isolate possible mosquito populations testing positive for the West Nile virus. Focused monitoring and treatment will occur in areas that surround positive traps.

In addition, proactive efforts will continue to include larvicide treatment of stagnant swimming pools and selected natural areas including creeks and detention ponds along with code enforcement response related to reports of standing water. To report areas of stagnant water, or for additional inquiries, please email Environmental Services 
or call 214.509.4160.

Even with enhanced response efforts, residents are reminded to follow the 5 D’s to minimize the risk of mosquito bites and breeding. Find out more
