West Nile Virus Off-Season Testing Begins November 19

Off-season trapping will begin November 19 and continue until March 25. During this time the City will trap mosquitoes once every two weeks and test once a month. Due to the high volume of mosquitoes in the area, samples will be taken from a trap at 870 Shady Lane. Results from these tests will continue to be posted on the Mosquito Surveillance page on the City’s website. Weekly testing will resume at the start of next year’s full season on April 1.

City Schedules Two Ground Sprayings as Result of Positive Mosquito Sample

The City of Southlake has been notified that a mosquito sample has tested positive for the West Nile Virus. The sample was taken from a trap at 870 Shady Lane.

The City intends for an initial ground spray to take place within a half-mile radius of the affected area (see map below) Thursday night (10/10/2013). Due to the high volume of mosquitos and a repeated positive sample in this area, the City scheduled an additional spraying for Friday night (10/11/2013).

Public Works Director Bob Price reminds residents: “Though temperatures are cooling, mosquitos will remain active until low temperatures become consistent. Residents should continue to take caution to protect themselves and their family.”

Price also adds that everyone should use insect repellent containing DEET whenever you are outside and where mosquitoes may be present—especially during dusk and dawn when they are most active and remove any standing water on their property.
