Truck-mounted fogging for mosquitoes will take place near 240 McDonwell School Road in Colleyville the night of Sept. 21 after the city was notified of its 13th positive West Nile virus sample in 2021, according to a city press release.

On Sept. 20, Tarrant County notified the city of the positive West Nile virus sample, which was one of the six submitted for the week of Sept. 16, the release stated. The positive sample was found near 240 McDonwell School Road.

Ronni Orr, city of Colleyville community relations and event specialist, said the fogging will take place around the streets and open areas at the park from 9 p.m.-5 a.m. on Sept. 21. Those within a quarter-mile of the area are being notified.

The positive West Nile sample on Sept. 20 comes after the city announced on Sept. 16 that three of the six mosquito samples submitted to Tarrant County for the week of Sept. 9 came back positive.

Those positive samples were taken near 3200 Scarborough Lane, 240 McDonwell School Road and 5200 Bransford Road, the release stated. Truck-mounted fogging of the affected areas was completed last week, according to the city’s newsletter.



To help control mosquitoes and the spread of West Nile virus, the city asks residents to practice the “Three D's”: use insect repellent with DEET, picaridin or lemon eucalyptus oil; dress in long sleeves and pants when outside; and drain standing water.
