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 at 870 Shady Lane.
Due to the large amount of residents expected to be outside trick-or-treating Thursday night, the City has scheduled ground spraying to take place Friday night (11/01/2013) after 8:30 p.m. in accordance with the City’s West Nile Virus Action Plan.
Public Works Director Bob Price states: “We are urging residents to take every precaution when out trick-or-treating. Mosquitoes are most active at dusk and everyone should use insect repellent containing DEET.”
