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 Monday, July 30 beginning at 9:00 P.M. The targeted spray areas are bordered by the following:
Bob Woodruff Trail/Rockbrook Drive (North)
Hillridge Drive (South)
Valencia Drive/ Hendrick Dr. (East)
Judy Drive (West)
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.
