Mosquito Pool Tests Positive for West Nile

The City of Plano reports that a pool of mosquitoes in one of the City’s mosquito traps has come back positive for West Nile. The City will take proactive measures by spraying a targeted location in and around the area of the trap. Weather permitting, Plano Environmental Quality Division crews will spray Tuesday, August 7 beginning at 9:00 P.M. The targeted spray areas are bordered by the following:

SPRAY AREA: 14th Street & East Plano Parkway

Residents are urged to ensure children and pets are indoors during the time of spraying.

The City encourages citizens to follow common prevention practices:

DRAIN standing water in and around your home and neighborhood.

DRESS appropriately before going outdoors.

DEET (N, N-diethyl-m-toluamide) is an ingredient to look for when purchasing insect repellent. The use of bug spray is recommended at all times, when outdoors, especially during the day.

Citizens with concerns or questions can call the City of Plano Environmental Health and Sustainability Department at 972-941-7143.
