The city will post information when positive samples of mosquito-borne diseases are found. This information will also contain a map of the spraying areas.
Upcoming Spray Areas
The City of Grand Prairie reports one West Nile Virus positive mosquito sample and will ground spray the following area for two nights on Wednesday, Aug 21, and Thursday, Aug 22, depending on weather conditions, starting at 9 p.m.
This area is bound by W Trinity Boulevard on the north, Hardrock Road on the east, W Oakdale Road on the south, and Roy Orr Boulevard on the west.
What happens if my neighborhood is sprayed?
Residents in an area scheduled to be sprayed are advised to stay indoors, keep pets inside, and cover fish ponds during those times. Spraying will be rescheduled if wind speeds are above 10 mph or in the event of rain.
All Grand Prairie residents are asked to help eliminate the areas that mosquitoes need to breed by emptying, removing or covering any receptacle that can hold water.
To prevent mosquito bites, residents are advised to use an insect repellent containing at least 30 percent DEET (lower concentration for children) and stay indoors at dawn and dusk.
