City to Spray After Positive West Nile Virus Sample

The City of Southlake has been notified that a mosquito sample has tested positive for the West Nile Virus.

The City of Southlake will respond by ground spraying within a half-mile of the positive test result that was located in the 700 block of Ashleigh Lane. The spraying will occur for three consecutive nights starting Thursday, July 21 and continuing through Saturday, July 23, weather permitting.

You can help do your part by being proactive against the West Nile Virus. To help eliminate mosquito breeding grounds, regularly check for sources of water in and around your home or business and empty any containers with standing water.

We also want to remind everyone to stay vigilant and proactive in protecting yourself and your family from mosquitoes.

Remember to:

  • Dress in long sleeves
  • Wear insect repellent containing DEET
  • Drain standing water, which is especially important after the recent rains.
