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

The positive West Nile Virus trap is located in the 3200 block of Woodland Drive.

The City will begin spraying within the half-mile radius from the trap location. Spraying will begin on Thursday night, October 5th, and continue through Saturday night, October 7th, 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
