Abandoned Crab Trap Removal Program

Crab Trap Removal Program


Starting Feb. 17 and continuing through Feb. 26, all Texas bays will be closed for crabbing. Any traps left in the water will be assumed to be abandoned and considered “litter” under state law. This allows volunteers to legally remove any crab traps they find.

To facilitate volunteer trap removal efforts this year, TPWD will provide trap drop-off sites at several locations in each major bay system along the coast starting Feb.18, from 8 a.m. to noon, depending on the weather. Additionally, at all sites, dumpsters marked with banners will be available to receive traps for the duration of the closure.

    I live in a apartment and I have tons of mosquitoes outside on the patio. What can I do to get rid of them? I read that mosquitoes aren’t attracted to the ultra violet light in bug zappers, so that won’t work, anything else I can do?
