City to Spray Following One Positive Sample of West Nile Virus

The City of Southlake has received notice from Tarrant County Public Health that one mosquito trap in Southlake has tested positive for the West Nile virus. The positive sample is located in the 800 block of Shady 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 8 and continue through Saturday night, September 11, 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
