The spraying will take place Aug. 3 and Aug. 4 from 9 p.m. to 4:30 a.m. City health officials decided to spray the area after a trap within the district caught mosquitoes that tested positive for the virus, according to a city release.
Richardson officials are working with other health agencies in the area to contain the spread of the West Nile virus, the release said.
Measures being taken include traps being set across the city to monitor mosquito populations, reducing water levels where needed and collaborating with regional partners to improve monitoring of the virus.
Richardson also offers an interactive mosquito map on its website that allows residents to find out the latest test results in their area.
Additional information about Richardson’s mosquito control program is available on the city website.
