The first location is near North County Road, south of Eldorado Parkway. This is the seventh positive test at this location so far this year, a news release from the city said. The second location is near the Taychas Trail on Cliffbrook Drive, east of Independence Parkway.
The city sprayed overnight Sept. 3-4 in some areas of the Meadow Hill Estates and Frisco Springs neighborhoods. Spraying also occurred in the Hunter’s Creek and Turnbridge Manor neighborhoods.
The city tracks this season’s West Nile-positive pools with an interactive online map.
No human cases of West Nile are confirmed in Frisco this year.
Frisco is recommending precautionary steps from the Texas Department of State Health Services:
- Wear long sleeves and pants outside at dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are most active.
- Use insect repellants every trip outside. Approved repellents contain DEET, picaridin or oil of lemon eucalyptus.
- Drain standing water that collects in birdbaths, French drains, clogged gutters, saucers under potted plants and splash blocks at the end of gutter downspouts as mosquitoes can breed in stagnant water.
