Mosquito control efforts begin

The City’s Department of Health Services began testing for the presence of the West Nile Virus and other mosquito related diseases back in May. So far this year, over 150 random mosquitoes sample pools have been collected. To date all of the city’s mosquito sample pools have tested negative for West Nile and any other mosquito related diseases. “Although none of our more than 150 mosquito sample pools submitted from the city to the Texas Department of Health State Health Services Laboratory this year have tested positive for West Nile or other mosquito related diseases; based on the huge number of mosquito collected in our most recent sample collections the city is taking a proactive step in preventing West Nile and other mosquito related diseases by initiating our ground spray efforts in order to try to reduce the number of mosquitoes in advance of detecting the presence of mosquito related diseases this year,” said Chauncy Williams, director of the department of health services for the city.
