In the city’s 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 mosquitos on Thursday, September 15, Friday, September 16, and Sunday, September18, in the Thrush Avenue area from 9 p.m. thru 5 a.m., weather permitting. A positive mosquito trap pool for the West Nile Virus was reported by the County in this 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 mostly like to occur.
To prevent the spread of mosquitos, residents should remove all areas of standing water and report all pools that are not well maintained and abandoned homes where mosquitos 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 mosquitos are most active.
