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 the 1400 block of Byron Nelson Parkway.

“Thank you to the residents of Southlake for your diligence in the continued fight against West Nile Virus,” says Fire Chief Mike Starr. “Though temperatures are cooling, mosquitos will remain active until low temperatures become consistent.”

Starr adds that residents should continue to take caution to protect themselves and their family by draining and treating standing water on their property. Also, to always wear insect repellent containing DEET when outdoors—especially at dusk and dawn.

The City intends to ground spray within a half-mile radius of the affected areas (see map(s) below) tomorrow night (10/23), Friday night (10/24), and Saturday night (10/25)—weather permitting.
