Dallas to Spray For West Nile Tonight

If you live near the Tollway, listen up: Officials at Dallas City Hall were kind enough to inform us that spraying to control the West Nile virus will happen from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. tonight in the area pictured.

From the press release:

While the insecticide is considered safe, residents in the above areas should avoid contact with the spray by staying indoors. Persons inside a vehicle while trucks are actively spraying should remain in their vehicles with the windows up and the air conditioner on until the trucks pass and the spray is no longer visible. Persons out during the scheduled spraying time should be alert for trucks and should not follow them. Residents who come in contact with the spray are advised to wash the affected area thoroughly with soap and water. The spray breaks down quickly in the presence of sunlight and has no residual effect. Fish ponds should be protected and pets should be brought inside during the spraying period.

Don’t get bit, y’all.
