Positive Sample for West Nile Virus Found Near Bob Jones Park

The City of Southlake has been notified that a mosquito sample has tested positive for the West Nile Virus. The sample was taken from a trap in the  3200 block of Woodland Drive which is located near Bob Jones Park.  The positive sample was collected on Thursday, September 19 from this location. On Sunday, September 22, the area was sprayed within a half-mile radius in response to a previous positive test—which had been delayed due to inclement weather.

On Tuesday, September 24, a second sample from this area was taken and was found to be negative for West Nile Virus. The follow-up test returning negative results for West Nile indicates that the ground spraying of this area was effective, and for this reason the City will not ground spray unless new test results indicate that spraying is necessary.

For more information on what Southlake is doing in the area of mosquito surveillance and control, please see CityofSouthlake.com/WestNileVirus.
