It is mosquito season, and the town of Flower Mound is giving away mosquito larvicide tablets or “dunks” to Flower Mound residents, the town announced in a press release May 26.

“Dunks” are small tablets that release an environmentally-safe larvicide that targets and eliminates mosquito larva when placed in standing water. They remain active for 30 to 45 days after submersion.

Examples of standing water favored by mosquitos include bird baths, planter basins, stagnant pools and water troughs.

Flower Mound is offering two dunks at no cost per household. Residents can, with proof of residency such as a utility bill or driver’s license, receive the tablets at the Flower Mound Town Hall, 2121 Cross Timbers Road. Town Hall is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

There is a limited supply of tablets, and distribution is done on a first-come, first-serve basis. Tablets are also available at most local home, garden and hardware stores.
