On Thursday evening, the city’s environmental services division was notified that two mosquito traps tested positive for West Nile virus. These are the second and third West Nile positives of the season. The areas are:
• Zone 6 is in the area of Edgehill Road, John Jones Drive, Wilshire and Summercrest Boulevard
• Zone 9 is in the area of Interstate 35, Wilshire Blvd, Rigney Way, Warren Street and Gregory Street
The city of Burleson will conduct truck-based spraying for mosquitoes between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. The spraying will be performed in targeted subdivisions within the designated spray zones.
In the event of rain or if wind speeds are above 10 miles per hour, the spraying may be rescheduled. This method of spraying targets flying mosquitoes that come in contact with the pesticide in the spray. These times have been chosen because they are the times that most mosquitoes are active (flying).
