Mosquito Spraying Schedule

The City of Mansfield, in conjunction with the Tarrant County Health Department, participates in mosquito surveillance and testing each April to November (or until the first freeze). The decision to spray is based on multiple conditions including significant increases in mosquitos, positive samples for West Nile Virus found in Mansfield and/or adjacent communities, notifications from Tarrant County Public Health, and the time of year.

Read Tarrant County Current Arbovirus Reports.

The City will post all notifications of spray events and maps of their locations as they are scheduled through the City website, Facebook, Nextdoor, Twitter, and the City Newsroom. Residents may also sign up for email or text notification through Notify Me. Please watch social media or check the City’s website for updates should there be a change in the spraying schedule due to weather.

Notice of Upcoming Spray Areas

Currently there is no spraying planned.

All residents are encouraged to continue to follow the 4D’s of personal protection throughout the mosquito season regardless of surveillance results.

  • Dusk to Dawn - stay indoors when mosquitoes are active
  • Drain - standing water in your yard where water might collect in places like flower pots, toys, clogged rain gutters and wading pools
  • Dress - in light-colored long sleeves and pants
  • DEET - apply repellant when outdoors

Personal protection and elimination of breeding habitat are the best, most cost effective means of mosquito control. Individual residents are the only ones who can ensure these steps are taken.

Adult mosquito control procedures, particularly spraying of adulticides, should and will be considered a supplemental control measure of last resort.  Read more information on spraying: What You Need to Know About Using Adulticides Fact Sheet, What You Need to Know About Truck Spraying Factsheet and Mosquito Ground Spraying Products.

What can I do to reduce my risk of mosquito bites?

Preventing mosquito bites is the best way to reduce risk of contracting West Nile Virus. Tarrant County Public Health’s Be Mosquito Free program recommends the following:

  • Dump all standing water
  • Wear long sleeves and pants
  • Use an EPA-approved insect repellent
  • Keep vegetation trimmed
