Areas in Dallas to be sprayed for Mosquito Abundance

Dallas, Texas – The City of Dallas will be spraying for mosquito abundance in the area(s) listed below. Weather permitting the area(s) delineated below is/are scheduled for mosquito control spraying on Thursday, June 11, 2020 between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m.

Control Area: The area to be sprayed is within an area generally bounded by: 2900  block of SUNDIAL (75229): NORTHAVEN RD. on the north, INDIAN TRAIL on the west, CHANNEL DR. on the east, and DOTHAN LN. on the south. 

Control Area: The area to be sprayed is within an area generally bounded by: 3900 block of BIGLOW (75216): MARFA AVE. on the north, S. LANCASTER RD. on the west, GARRISON ST. on the east, and CUSTER DR. on the south. 

While the Environmental Protection Agency approves the insecticide for treatment, residents in the above areas should avoid contact with the spray by staying indoors.  People inside a vehicle while trucks are actively spraying should remain in their vehicles with the windows up and the air conditioner on until the trucks pass through and the spray is no longer visible. People who are out during the scheduled spraying time should be alert for trucks and should not follow them. Residents who come into contact with the spray are advised to wash the affected area thoroughly with soap and water. The spray breaks down quickly in the presence of sunlight and has no residual effect.

Protection against mosquito bites

Dallas residents are urged to take precautions against mosquito bites by reducing outdoor activity during evening and night time hours. Residents who are outside during these times should cover their arms and legs and use a mosquito repellent.  

Prevent mosquito breeding

Residents should eliminate standing water to prevent mosquito breeding and the spread of West Nile Virus. Breeding places for mosquitoes include swimming pools that are not kept clean, stagnant ponds, pet watering dishes, birdbaths, potted plants, old tires, empty containers, toys and clogged rain gutters and French drains.  Eliminate standing water promptly, as mosquitoes can grow from egg to adult in as little as seven days. Dallas residents may receive free mosquito dunks at Code Compliance Services District Offices while supplies last.
