Town confirms 11th West Nile case
The Denton County Health Department epidemiologist has confirmed the eleventh human case of West Nile virus this year in Flower Mound.
Eight of the eleven cases were classified as the more serious West Nile Neuroinvasive Disease.
Free mosquito larvicide or “dunks” – small tablets to be placed in standing water – are available to Flower Mound residents for pick up at Town Hall, 2121 Cross Timbers Rd. between 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The town will conduct mosquito control spraying Aug. 16 in the one-half square-mile radius surrounding Bershire Court and Bershire Drive due to recent West Nile-positive mosquito samples.

The boat ramps in Murrell Park in Flower Mound and Dove Loop ramp in Oak Grove Park in Grapevine will be closed Monday, August 13, to allow U.S. Geological Survey dive teams to survey the lake for presence of zebra mussels.
Dive teams are scheduled to begin the survey in the morning and the ramps should reopen by mid-afternoon.
