City of Heath to spray for mosquitoes after sample tests positive for West Nile virus

HEATH, Texas – The City of Heath will perform ground-based spraying for mosquitoes after a sample test from a trap site on Terry Lane tested positive for the West Nile virus.
The spraying will be conducted on Friday, July 14, 2017, after 9 p.m. in an area generally bound by Smirl Drive, Crisp Drive, Lake Ray Hubbard, and north of Darr Road.

The City of Heath will continue to test for the West Nile virus at several different locations throughout the city and will conduct additional spraying as needed,” the city stated in a release on Thursday.

“To date, no cases of West Nile Virus infection have been reported in the City,” stated the release.

The pesticide Permanone will be used during the ground-based spraying.

“Pesticides that are used for mosquito control have been judged by the EPA not to pose an unreasonable risk to human health,” stated their website. “Spraying is scheduled in the evening to limit exposure to people who may wish to avoid contact with the pesticide used to control mosquito populations.”
