Environmental Health Division

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 and Prevention


The City of Allen Environmental Health Division implements mosquito control activities year-round, depending on the weather (typically between May and October). In addition to trapping and testing mosquitoes for the West Nile Virus, these activities include identifying locations with stagnant water and treating with larvicides as needed. The Environmental Health Division has also initiated code enforcement cases for stagnant water sources and launched ongoing education efforts.
