Caddo Parish Begins Spraying for Mosquitos to Fight West Nile Virus
Trucks are rolling throughout Caddo Parish spraing for mosquitos in an effort to battle the West Nile Virus.
Mosquito Control Supervisor Brian Glascock tells KEEL News no mosquitos have tested positive for the virus so far this year. “Everything has been negative and we do testing once a week or every other week, depending on how many pools we have.” Glascock says the spraying trucks are out every day at dusk and roll until 10 each night. He advises you to walk around your house after these rains and get rid of any standing water. If you would like the trucks to spray in your neighborhood, contact Mosquito Control at 226-6624. Residents are encouraged to stay indoors while the spraying is done in your neighborhood.
