West Nile Virus Preparations

We all know that last summer was hot, dry and full of mosquitoes carrying West Nile Virus.

Residents of DeSoto and the other southern suburbs of Dallas were not exceptions to the cases found throughout Dallas county. Some people in DeSoto, perhaps even someone you know fell ill with West Nile Virus last year.

Highland Park, Lewisville, Richardson, Farmer’s Branch, and perhaps more municipalities are already spraying for mosquitoes.

Although it’s been a year, people are still recovering from illness, and this week, Dallas County confirmed the 20th death from West Nile Virus. Read the press release.

Below you will also find a notice about protecting your family and minimizing mosquito breeding around your home.
