OK, Highland Park, it’s your turn. The town will be spraying for mosquitoes (mainly in quadrant D) starting tonight through tomorrow morning. None of the mosquitoes have tested positive for West Nile Virus, but the total number of mosquitoes found in quadrant D has reached the treatable threshold set by the town. Here’s the official schedule:
- Tuesday, July 29th: 8:00 PM-10:00 PM: Highland Park Pool area and unoccupied tennis courts
- Tuesday, July 29th: 10:00 PM-5:00 AM: Truck mounted ground spraying in Quadrant D only
- Wednesday, July 30th: 8:00 PM-10:00 PM: Highland Park Pool area and unoccupied tennis courts
- Wednesday, July 30th: 10:00 PM to 5:00 AM: Truck mounted ground spraying in Quadrant D only
If there’s rain or high winds, the spraying will be rescheduled. Stay inside during spraying, and clean out water dishes for pets afterward. Limit outdoor activities in the evening, use mosquito spray when you must be outside, and report any standing water to the town at 214-521-4161. Read more here.
