Two more West Nile virus-positive mosquito pools in Frisco bumps the tally up to 21 positive pools since testing began May 1, according to a city news release.

Areas around the Trails of Frisco Golf Club and Cottonwood Creek Park and Trail will also see spraying: Shaddock Estates, Heather Ridge Estates, The Fairways at The Trails and Country Club at the Trails.

If weather permits, a third-party contractor will apply treatment for the two consecutive nights, beginning from 9 p.m. July 31 and continuing through 5 a.m. Aug. 1. The overnight schedule is the same on Aug. 1, ending at 5 a.m. Aug. 2.
