Southlake Mosquito Abatement District Reports Positive West Nile Collection Test

The Southlake Mosquito Abatement District (SLMAD) recently reported that three mosquito collections have tested positive for West Nile Virus in Deerfield.

SLMAD conducted ground-based adult mosquito control treatments in those specific areas, but residents should still take extra precautions to protect against mosquitoes:

  1. Drain standing water in containers like flowerpot saucers, bird baths and watering cans or in the folds of outdoor tarps.
  2. Dusk and dawn are when mosquitoes that can carry viruses are most active, so limit outdoor activities or take precautions to prevent mosquito bites.
  3. Protect yourself by using an insect repellent that includes an active ingredient like DEET.
  4. Dress in long sleeves and pants during dusk and dawn or in areas where mosquitoes are active.
  5. West Nile Virus is rare, but if you have symptoms including high fever, severe headache and a stiff neck, contact your healthcare provider immediately.

For more information and resources, visit SLMAD's website. If you have questions or concerns, contact SLMAD at 800.942.2555. All Village residents on the District’s prior notification list will receive an automated call this afternoon. Any resident may register to be notified prior to future adult mosquito control applications at www.slmad.org or the mosquito hotline at 800.942.2555.
