Town to conduct mosquito spraying

The Town of Flower Mound will conduct spraying operations in the area of McKamy Creek Drive and Flower Mound Road after a mosquito sample collected near the 1800 block of Kipling Drive tested positive for West Nile virus.

The spraying will take place between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. on Tuesday, July 10. Spraying operations may be rescheduled to the evening of July 11 if weather conditions are not suitable on July 10.

Residents in the affected neighborhoods will be notified with community signs placed at major intersections within the spraying area, and are advised to minimize exposure when possible.

On July 6, the town was notified by Denton County Epidemiologists of a single positive human case of West Nile virus in Flower Mound.

Town officials will continue surveillance and monitoring in the area through increased trapping and lab analysis of mosquitoes.

In the event that more mosquito samplings are found to be positive for West Nile virus, the town will schedule a mosquito spraying in an approximate one-half square mile radius surrounding the affected area.
