MOSQUITO SEASON IS HERE

The City of Duncanville is divided into five zones with a fixed mosquito trap in each zone. Each zone is monitored and tested weekly for the presence of the West Nile virus. A positive trap will result in mosquito ground spraying in the zone that is positive. A 24 hour notice of spraying will be posted on the City website with a shaded map, and a notification will be sent out on our Everbridge emergency notification system. If you would like to sign up for Everbridge, please click on the link to sign up for Everbridge.

Spraying does not protect you; it only reduces the number of mosquitos in the area. For personal protection from biting mosquitos, use insect repellents with DEET or other EPA approved repellents.

Remember the 4Ds

DEET Whenever you’re outside, use insect repellents with DEET or other EPA approved repellents.
DRESS Wear long, loose, and light-colored clothing outside.
DRAIN Drain or treat all standing water in and around your home or workplace. (Keep pools and spas drained or clean and clear with bottom of pool clearly visible with chlorine at least 1 ppm and the pump running at least 8 hrs. per day).
DUSK & DAWN Limit outdoor activities during dusk and dawn.
