CITY TO FOLLOW NEW MOSQUITO CONTROL POLICY PASSED BY CITY COUNCIL

The Corinth City Council passed a new Mosquito Control Policy in January of this year, which included awarding a contract to Vector Disease Control for mosquito abatement. The new policy and abatement program is aimed at reducing the risk of illness due to West Nile Virus by using an aggressive and scientific approach to control the mosquito populations.

Weekly testing is being performed throughout the City by placing Gravid traps to capture mosquitos overnight. The specimens are then sent to the Vector Disease Control lab in Richardson, Texas. The specimens will be identified and screened for the presence of the West Nile Virus. There have not been any positive test results for West Nile Virus in Corinth thus far in 2016. Visit the City’s West Nile Virus webpage regularly for the most up-to-date information.

“Through the efforts of the City Council, the City is poised to effectively control the mosquito population this year. However, citizen involvement is essential and we encourage our residents to report any potential mosquito breeding grounds to help us proactively reduce the risks of mosquito borne diseases,” stated Cody Collier, Acting Director of Public Works.

Eliminating breeding grounds is one of the most important and effective methods of controlling the mosquito population. Residents are encouraged to proactively eliminate standing water from areas around their property; such as neglected pools, leaky hoses, clogged rain gutters, fountains and bird baths, and piles of trash or debris.

Sign up for Notify Me in order to receive information on positive tests and spraying. Information will also be posted on the City's website, Facebook page, and Twitter account.
