The city of Dallas hopes to combat the spread of the West Nile virus by spraying for mosquitos in several neighborhoods.
The ground spraying will begin at 10 p.m. Monday and last through early Wednesday morning, weather permitting. Past sprayings have been called off due to rain.
The targeted areas include:
Those neighborhoods were selected because officials there have seen an increase in the number of mosquitos carrying the virus.
The Dallas County Health and Human Services department recommends people stay indoors while the insecticide is being sprayed. Anyone who comes in contact with the spray should wash thoroughly with soap and water.
