The City of Duncanville, at the recommendation and in cooperation with the Dallas County Health and Human Services (DCHHS), will be conducting ground spraying against mosquitos on Thursday, July 20, and Friday, July 21, between the hours of 9 pm and 5 am, weather permitting. Spraying will be performed to the west of Highway 67, to the north of Wheatland, to the south of Camp Wisdom and to the east of Clark in the Greenstone area.
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 most likely 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.
