This is a tentative schedule and is subject to change without notice due to disease priorities, weather or unforeseen circumstances.

Individuals are recommended to stay indoors while the treatment is being conducted in their area.

Historically, in the DFW metroplex, the season for mosquito-borne diseases such as West Nile Virus is typically from May through October with the peak of human cases occurring in August.

DCHHS continues to encourage residents to take the following precautions to reduce mosquito bites and exposure to mosquitoes.
  • Wear long, loose-fitting, light clothing to avoid mosquito bites at DUSK and DAWN when mosquitoes are most active.
  • Use EPA-approved insect repellents containing DEET.
  • Keep door and window screens in good condition and frames sealed tightly to prevent mosquitoes from entering the house.
  • Dump, drain and reduce standing water and mosquito-breeding sources outside your house.
