Mosquito Spraying Scheduled For E. Little Area Oct. 27th & 30th

In our continued effort against the West Nile Virus, the City of Duncanville has authorized the Dallas County Health and Human Services (DCHHS) to conduct ground spraying against mosquitoes on Thursday, October 27th, and Sunday, October 30th, between the hours of 9 PM and 5 AM, weather permitting. Spraying will be performed in the East Little Street area, which is bounded on the west by Santa Fe Trail, on the north by Wheatland Road, and on the east by Highway 67. Dallas County reported that a mosquito trap in this area tested positive for West Nile Virus this week. A map of the area to be treated is available here.

Residents living near this area are encouraged to remain indoors and bring their pets inside during spraying. City Staff will continue to monitor areas where mosquito breeding is mostly like to occur. To prevent the spread of mosquitoes, residents should remove all areas of standing water and report all pools that are not well maintained and abandoned homes where mosquitoes are likely to breed to the Health and Code Enforcement Department. Everyone should continue to protect themselves against the West Nile Virus by using insect repellent containing DEET. Citizens are also encouraged to remain indoors during dawn and dusk, when mosquitoes are most active.

For more information on the scheduled ground mosquito spraying in Duncanville, contact Health Inspector Mike Plemons at 972-740-1163.
