Fort Worth City officials are considering spraying for mosquitoes at a second location in southwest Fort Worth after a number of mosquitoes tested positive for West Nile Virus. Tarrant County Public Health has identified multiple positive tests for the virus from mosquitoes at the Fire Station 39 testing site, 7555 Oakmont Blvd. Fort Worth officials will conduct a meeting in the neighborhood at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 5, at RD Evans Community Center, 3200 Lackland Road, to address resident questions. If the decision to begin ground spraying for mosquitoes is made, treatment would begin Friday, Aug. 7. All residents are encouraged to take precautions to reduce exposure to mosquitoes by following the Four Ds, available on the Mosquito page.
