No West Nile Virus Positive Samples in Southlake But One in Colleyville

The City has great news to report to the residents of Southlake. All of the West Nile Virus traps set last week came back with ZERO positive results for West Nile Virus.

While that is good news, our neighboring City of Colleyville had one sample test positive for West Nile Virus in the Forest Meadow neighborhood. Fire Chief Mike Starr says, “Because that positive sample borders Southlake, the City is planning take proactive measures and spray within a half-mile radius of the sample.”

 The City of Southlake will utilize targeted ground spraying which will start on Thursday night September 1, and continue through Saturday night September 3, weather permitting.

Please remember to continue taking personal protective measures including:

  • Drain standing water in artificial containers; this is the primary source of mosquitoes
  • Dress in long sleeves
  • Wear insect repellent containing DEET

For more information about the West Nile Virus, personal protective measures, or response actions, please visit CityofSouthlake.com or MySouthlakeNews.com. And as always, if you have any mosquito concerns, please reach out to our environmental coordinator at cupton@ci.southlake.tx.us.
