Dallas to spray for mosquitos

Posted: Updated:

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:

  • Between McLean Avenue, Brandon Street, S. Westmoreland Road and Glenhaven Boulevard
  • Between Grove Oaks Boulevard, Masters Drive, Old Seagoville Road, September Lane and Apache Drive
  • Between Lewiston Avenue, Scyene Road, Masters Drive, Noweta Avenue and Koonce Avenue
  • Between Hillcrest Road, Churchill Way, Pecan Forest Drive, Lake Edge Drive and Stone Meadow Drive
  • Between Edgemere Road, Northport Drive, Hillcrest Road and Norway Road
  • Between Hoblitzelle Drive, Town Street, Oberlin Drive and Granis Street

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.
