The "urban" core of League City, including Centerpointe, has reportedly not yet been sprayed for mosquitoes, whereas most of the rest of the city has. And in the case of west LC, not once, but twice.

|I've never given this much thought before now, but if you were to compare assessed property values vs. likelihood of getting a timely mosquito spray, I think you might see a bit of a positive correlation here. All except for us (the red-headed suburban stepchild of the urban center), and Mar Bella to the extreme east (do they maybe hire their own private service?)|
So tomorrow I'll call Mosquito Control and ask them that question: "Have you chosen to exclude central League City because you think it's Old Town and only lower-income people live here? Do property values have anything to do with why you've sprayed west LC and Friendswood twice already??" Yes, that's stooping low, but desperate times call for desperate measures.
Updated September 5, 2013: Just to underscore the seriousness of the perspective I'm trying to convey here, I had my teenager count the number of new mosquito bites she received this morning. It's only 7 a.m. as I write this, and so far today, she has gotten sixteen new bites - five when she let the dog out to do her morning business, and eleven more going from home to school bus and from school bus into the school. That's not 16 total bites - that's 16 new bites just in the first hour of today.
And that's on a child who was highly motivated to minimize the number she's receiving. If she hadn't been actively working to combat the mosquitoes, she wouldn't have gotten 16 - she would have gotten 160.
|Nearby areas in which properties like these are found don't seem to be much of a priority at the moment.|
|But you're in luck if instead you happen to live in South Shore, Tuscan Lakes, or Westover. The first digit on your sales price wouldn't be the same as these, however. |
