City to Spray After Four Positive West Nile Virus Samples

The City of Southlake has received notice from Tarrant County Public Health that four mosquito traps in Southlake have tested positive for the West Nile Virus.

The positive samples are located in the 100 block of Meadowlark Lane, the 2200 block of Shady Oaks Drive, 800 block of Shady Lane, and the 700 block of Ashleigh Lane.

The City will respond with targeted spraying for three consecutive nights within a half-mile radius of each of the positive trap locations. Spraying will start on Thursday night, September 15 and continue through Saturday night, September 18, 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
