Weather permitting, the city will spray areas near the traps beginning 9 p.m. Wednesday, according to a city news release.

One of the areas to be sprayed is bordered by Bob Woodruff Trail/Rockbrook Drive, Hillridge Drive, Valencia Drive/Hendrick Drive and Judy Drive. The same area was sprayed for mosquitoes in July and August.

The other area to be sprayed is bordered by Chaparral Road, Emerald Coast Drive, Morton Vale Road and Abrams Drive.

The city release urged residents to ensure children and pets remain indoors during the time of the spraying.

In order to prevent the spread of West Nile virus, the city also urged residents to drain standing water in or around their homes, dress appropriately before going outdoors, and wear bug spray containing DEET.
