July 2 fogging scheduled
In advance of the July 4 Weekend, to limit the mosquito population and to boost outdoor enjoyment through the holiday period, crews will fog all alleys and parks throughout the community. Weather permitting, fogging will begin after 9 p.m.
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 check all traps on a weekly basis. Collected mosquitoes are sent to one of two area labs, Dallas County or Municipal Mosquito. The labs sort, identify and test the samples for West Nile, Dengue, Chickungunya and Zika viruses.
Here is a map showing the location of mosquito traps in University Park.
Mosquito control is a joint effort with both the homeowner and the City's Parks Department.
