Fort Worth Breaks No-Spray Streak To Launch Ground Attack Tonight

Aug 17, 2012

The city of Fort Worth begins ground spraying for mosquitoes tonight – the first spraying in more than 20 years.

Trucks will be out between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. both tomorrow and Sunday night.

They’ll be in parts of the 76104 and 76110 zip codes. That’s generally the hospital district south of I-30 and the nearby Fairmount neighborhood.

If there is a weather delay tonight, the three-in-a-row schedule will be pushed to Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

West Nile virus cases in Tarrant County increased 20% between Monday and yesterday.  There are no plans for aerial spraying.
