Traps & Testing

During mosquito season the City places traps throughout the community to monitor mosquito counts and activity. Generally, the traps are near schools and parks. City personnel checks all traps on a weekly basis. Collected mosquitoes are sent to one of two area labs, Dallas County or Municipal Mosquito. The lab sort, identify and test the samples for West Nile, Dengue, Chickungunya, and Zika viruses.
