(Click above link for 2023 Activity Summary)

Metropolitan Mosquito Control District has just begun our season and we wanted to send a message out to cities to let residents know that they may see our trucks, helicopters, or staff with identifiable “Mosquito Control” apparel in neighborhoods and parks.

PDF of press release:


Tires are one of the most common breeding sources for some of the most dangerous species of mosquitoes. Rubber tires hold water easily, they stay warm in the Summer, and they can be hard to empty.

Solution: Contact Metropolitan Mosquito Control and they will remove tires (that do not have rims) at no cost. PLEASE DO NOT DUMP TIRES IN DITCHES!

You can also contact Washington County's environmental center or local auto repair shops, which will often recycle tires for a fee.

Deer carcasses found on private property within Baytown Township are the responsibility of the property owner. Dead deer found along township or county roads within the road right of way can be reported for pickup as follows:

Municipal (township controlled) Roads:  All notifications must be reported through the Township Clerk.  If you see a dead deer on a Baytown Township road or right of way, please contact the clerk at 651-430-4992. The township has a contract with an outside deer service who will remove all reported deer within 48 hours.
