[ARCHIVED] City of Seagoville Spraying Against Mosquitos

The City of Seagoville has authorized the Dallas County Health and Human Services (DCHHS) to conduct ground spraying against mosquitos along both sides of the Highway 175 service road. On the North of Highway 175 spraying will be conducted from Briar Creek Subdivision to Modene Street to Lasater Road to include Highland Meadows Subdivision. On the South side of Highway 175 spraying will be conducted from the Pulte Subdivision to Bluff Road and areas south to include Bowers, and the bottom land to Ballard Road. Both areas will be sprayed Friday, September 9th, 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m.; Saturday, September 10th, 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m.; and Monday, September 11th, 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m., weather permitting. Positive mosquito trap pools for the West Nile Virus were reported by the County in the 800 block of High School Drive and the 200 block of W. Mathis.

Residents living near these areas 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 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 mosquitos are most active.
