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 Friday, July 17, and Saturday, July 18, between the hours of 9 pm and 5 am, weather permitting. If the weather prohibits spraying on Friday night, spraying will be done on Saturday and Sunday nights. Spraying will be performed in the area that is south of Camp Wisdom, north of Wheatland, west of Main Street and east of Clark Road.

Residents living near this area are encouraged to remain indoors and bring their pets inside during spraying.

City and County 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 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 wear long sleeves and pants as well as remain indoors during dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are most active.
