Skeeter School
This fun and interactive program is designed to educate elementary age students on mosquitoes and their habitats. Most importantly it empowers students with the knowledge to decrease mosquito populations in their community and protect themselves against biting mosquitoes. Mosquitoes in each of the lifecycle stages will be on display.

Wiggle Tales
This program is designed for elementary age children and is available to libraries located in Harris County. A Mosquito Control representative will come to the library and read a short story to children about mosquitoes. Following the short story, a fun presentation about mosquito facts and myths will be presented. A copy of the book will be provided to the library for future reading enjoyment.

Community Presentations
A Mosquito Control representative will speak to your civic association or community group about mosquitoes, the role of the HCPH Mosquito Control in controlling disease-carrying mosquitoes, provide helpful tips on mosquito development site reduction, and effective personal protective measures against biting mosquitoes.
