Mosquito Spraying_aug. 8-9

Due to a positive West Nile mosquito test, the City of Mansfield will conduct targeted ground spraying. Spraying is expected to begin Tuesday, Aug. 7 through Wednesday, Aug. 9. Spraying will be conducted between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. Please reference the map below showing the specific spray area.

Please watch social media or check the City’s website for updates should there be a change in the spraying schedule due to weather.

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 mosquitos 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.
