With West Nile Detections on the Rise, Cities Continue to Spray

Jul 12, 2012

LADONIA - The City of Ladonia will again spray for mosquitoes Thursday night, as they did on July 2. A commercial vehicle with a mounted fogger will disperse the material between 10:30 p.m. and 1 a.m.

Residents are advised to bring in their pets and stay indoors during the spraying and for 20 to 30 minutes afterward. According to the city, the fine mist spray kills only those mosquitoes it comes into contact with and does not have residual effects on surfaces.

Additionally, you can do your part to minimize the mosquito presence by removing all standing water on your property and other trash and debris on a weekly basis.

For questions, contact Ladonia City Hall at 903-367-7011.

Mosquito spraying continues in Commerce every other week through late August, with the next round scheduled for the week of July 16. Spraying is administered around 7 p.m. in only one section of the city each night. See when spraying will take place in your neighborhood here.

The latest report from the Texas Department of State Health Services showed traces of West Nile virus in 204 mosquitoes in 14 counties so far in 2012. None of those cases have resulted in fatalities.
