City to Spray for Mosquitos After Positive WNV Trap on Ashleigh Lane

The City of Southlake has received notice from Tarrant County Public Health that a mosquito trap in Southlake has tested positive for West Nile Virus.

The positive West Nile Virus trap is located in the 700 block of Ashleigh Lane.

The City will begin spraying within a half-mile radius of the trap location. Spraying will begin on Thursday night, August 10th, and continue through Saturday night, August 12th, weather permitting. The chemicals in the spray are specifically designed to target mosquitos with a quick burn-off in sunlight to mitigate any pet health concerns.
Residents should continue taking protective measures to help reduce the mosquito population, including:

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

And as always, if you have any mosquito concerns, please reach out to our Emergency Manager Amanda Meneses at (817) 748-8903 or email her at ameneses@ci.southlake.tx.us.
