City to Spray After Two Positive WNV Traps Test Positive

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

The positive traps were located in the 2200 block of Shady Oaks and the 100 block of Welford Lane. The City of Southlake will begin spraying for the WNV tomorrow night at the half mile radius from the trap locations. Spraying is set for Friday, September 15, Saturday, September 16, and Sunday, September 17 during the evening hours, weather permitting.

We appreciate the public’s assistance in helping us reduce the West Nile Virus mosquito population. Please remember to continue taking personal protective measures including:

  • Drain standing water in artificial containers; this is the primary source of the 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 emergency operations and environmental coordinator Eric Hutmacher at ehatmacher@ci.southlake.tx.us.
