Saturday Mosquito Spraying Cancelled

Aug 18, 2012

Aerial spraying for mosquitoes over Dallas County cities is cancelled for tonight.

At a Saturday afternoon update, County Judge Clay Jenkins said the chance of rain and windy conditions are keeping the planes on the ground until Sunday, Monday and Tuesday nights.

Friday night, storms cut short the spraying effort. Only about 30% of the intended area was sprayed. Planes will hit the remaining 70% Sunday night. Monday and Tuesday spraying will be a second application over the entire targeted area.

County officials will be releasing updated spraying maps as soon as possible.
