[ARCHIVED] Mosquito Spraying Scheduled For Friday Night

Benbrook, Texas – August 25, 2016

The City of Benbrook is spraying for mosquitoes within a half-mile radius of the 6900 block of Rolling Hills Drive in Benbrook. The spray area is generally bounded by the city limits to the north; Whitestone Ranch Road to the south; RM 2871 to the east; and the city limits to the west (see map).

City crews will begin spraying at approximately 11:00 PM on Friday evening, August 26, and conclude by 6:00 AM the following morning, August 27, weather permitting.

The spraying is in response to a positive reading of West Nile Virus in a mosquito found in one of the traps used to obtain samples for testing, as confirmed by Tarrant County Public Health.

The amount of mosquito control pesticide that is sprayed from the truck is not harmful to people or pets. However, as with any pesticide, it is a good idea to keep exposure to a minimum.

The City of Benbrook would like to remind residents of the importance of taking personal protective measures to safeguard against West Nile Virus. Residents should routinely dump standing water on their property, use repellent, and dress appropriately if outdoors, especially from dusk to dawn when mosquitoes are most active.
