The City of Southlake was notified Wednesday (9/24/2014) that two mosquito samples have tested positive for the West Nile Virus. The samples were taken from traps at 100 Meadowlark Lane and the 1700 block of Weeping Willow Way.
“We appreciate the help of residents reporting problem mosquito areas,” says Public Works Director Bob Price. “We use these reports to strategically place our roaming trap based on complaints and concerns.”
Price reminds everyone that the City needs your help to combat mosquito breeding on private property by to looking for sources of water in both the expected and unexpected places on a weekly basis and eliminate mosquito breeding grounds by draining standing water, covering outdoor containers, and treating stagnant water with larvicide.
The City intends to ground spray within a half-mile radius of the affected areas (see maps below) tomorrow night (9/25), Friday night (9/26), and Saturday night (9/27) in accordance with the City’s West Nile Virus Action Plan—weather permitting.
