City to target ground spray for West Nile virus

For the third week in a row, a number of mosquitoes tested positive for West Nile virus in three areas of the city. In conjunction with partners at the University of North Texas Health Science Center, the city will target ground spray to kill disease-carrying mosquitoes.

All spray mission will begin at approximately 9 p.m. If weather prevents spraying on any of these evenings, spraying will extend nightly.

About the process

The chemical that is used is similar to that available over-the-counter at hardware stores. It’s 3,500 times less concentrated because all we’re trying to kill is a tiny mosquito.

The spray is not hazardous to humans, pets, fish or larger insects.

Out of an abundance of caution, residents should keep pets indoors and keep windows closed during spraying.

Code Compliance officers will canvass the area before and during spraying.
