Change in Mosquito Spray Schedule

Spraying Will Now Occur on Mondays & Tuesdays

Beginning on Monday, August 7th, the City of Coppell will move scheduled mosquito spraying to Monday and Tuesday’s, instead of Tuesday and Wednesday’s. Shifting the ground spraying schedule back one day will help catch mosquitoes that are infected with West Nile Virus (WNV) before they have the opportunity to bite a human or reproduce.

“Our team is working to be more proactive against the threat of West Nile Virus in an effort to better protect the community,” said City Manager Mike Land. “We ask that residents help control the mosquito population by making sure they drain stagnant water on their property and use larvicide dunks when possible.”

During the mosquito trapping season, the Environmental Health Department receives notification on Monday’s around Noon regarding the presence of West Nile Virus (WNV) in mosquito traps. Areas where traps test positive for WNV mosquitoes are then scheduled for ground spraying that will be conducted on Monday and Tuesday nights. The purpose of spraying is to reduce the infected mosquito population, thus reducing the risk to residents and animals.

Mosquito larvicide dunks are available for free at Coppell Town Center, 255 Parkway Blvd. Environmental Health Staff will perform property reviews when requested; please call 972-462-5177, or email evhealth@coppelltx.gov for more information.
