City of Sugar Land update May 28, 2021
Here are some ways you can help fight the bite
Following some pretty wet weeks, the city has increased its seasonal mosquito spraying to twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays and is placing larvicide tablets in standing water to reduce mosquito reproduction.
The city sprays for mosquitoes to reduce the potential spread of mosquito-borne diseases. When spraying is required, the service will be performed on Tuesday and Friday nights, during the months of May through October. Spraying will begin each evening at approximately 9 p.m and continue until the entire city has been treated. Larvicide applications are also routinely performed citywide in order to help eliminate mosquito breeding sites.
In addition to the city's efforts, here are some ways you can help fight the bite!
-DUSK & DAWN are the times mosquitoes are most active, stay inside if possible
-DRAIN standing water where mosquitoes breed such as clogged gutters or birdbaths
-DEET defend yourself using insect repellent containing DEET or picaridin
-DRESS in long sleeves and pants, when outdoors

Winter Storm Recovery - Update on Solid Waste Services
Republic Services has resumed their normal collection schedule, providing once a week green waste collection and once a month bulk waste collection, along with normal garbage and recycle services. As we have resumed normal collection schedules, the City has deactivated the debris removal contractor that has been assisting with collection over the last few weeks. Residents should place their items at the curb for service on their designated collection days. Please remember that while construction and demolition debris was temporarily collected as part of the additional bulk waste service provided after Winter Storm Uri, these materials are not normally collected as bulk waste and will no longer be accepted. Click here for more details. For more information on construction debris disposal options, visit www.sugarlandtx.gov/wastepickup.
It has been brought to the Community’s attention that the new construction at the corner of Lombardy and Piedmont had building materials stolen this week. Information was found on a homeowners camera and our neighborhood video surveillance system to help the Sugar Land Police Detectives read the plate number. SLPD busted them and even got the material brought back. The value of materials was about $1500.00. Each entrance of Venetian Estates has a camera that takes a picture of each license plate that enters and exits our neighborhood. This system is monitored by the Sugar Land Police Department. This system was approved by your HOA Board and installed in 2021 as electronic eyes to keep Venetian Estates safe. Please continue to watch your surroundings, yours and your neighbors homes.
Great work Sugar Land PD!

If you have been walking or driving about the neighborhood you have probably noticed the numerous trees and ornamental plants affected by parasite ball moss. There is some discussion and dispute about whether mild contamination by this epiphyte is harmful to plants and trees. There is no dispute however that the ball moss contamination spreads and only gets worse with time if left untreated. For this reason we are sending out this notice to our residents that it is in the best interest of the neighborhood and out plants and trees that we do what we can to control the spread.
This method of control for the epiphyte was developed by the Extension and Research staff at Texas A&M. It involves the use of a copper fungicide; any product with Copper Hydroxide as the active ingredient. These products have been used with good success for the control of ball moss in result demonstrations. When controlling ball moss, it is important that you cover all the moss with the spray solution. Trees that are heavily infested with ball moss should be resprayed 12 months later. Applications made in the spring have proven to be much more effective than those made in the fall. It is concluded from observations from result demonstrations that for spray applications to be effective, they must take advantage of the spring rains and the normal uptake of the organisms. The copper is taken into the plant and results in eventual death.
Another method of control is baking soda. It may be purchased in large bags from your local feed store for this purpose. It is applied at the rate of 50 lbs. to 100 gallons of water. Remember to thoroughly saturate the ball moss. The ball moss will be dead, yet it will hold onto the tree to the hold fasts. It will, in most cases, take around 18 months for these hold fasts to decay sufficiently for the ball moss to be blown from the tree. Ball moss, once it has been killed, will become dark gray in color and the “leaf like” structures will point downward rather than be in an upright position.
Ball Moss Control & Schedule
1. Treat in early spring (February to April)
2. Use Copper Hydroxide (4-6 lb./100 gal. of water)
50 lbs. of Baking Soda/100 gal. of water. Apply at rate of 1 to 2 gal. of solution per foot of tree height.
3. Retreat any tree with signs of active ball moss after 12 months.
