Mosquito Pool Tests Positive for WNV; City to Treat with Larvicide, Increase Surveillance

(August 14, 2020) The City of Frisco will treat for mosquitoes after receiving confirmation one mosquito pool tested ’positive’ for West Nile Virus (WNV) near Copper Point Ln. in the Village Lakes Community. As a result, the city is increasing surveillance efforts and using larvicide in public areas between Legacy Dr. and Teel Pkwy, South of Main St. (see attached map) . No human cases of the virus are confirmed in Frisco. This is the eighth positive pool in Frisco, first at this location this season.

“Because we can’t treat private property, we need homeowner’s help to look for standing water outside their homes,” said Julie Fernandez, Environmental Health Supervisor.

Frisco homeowners can help do their part to ‘fight the bite’ by taking the following steps to control mosquitoes indoors and outdoors, as recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC):

  • Use screens on windows and doors. Repair holes in screens to keep mosquitoes outdoors.
  • Use air conditioning, if available.
  • Stop mosquitoes from laying eggs in or near water.
    • Once a week empty and scrub, turn over, cover, or throw out items that hold water such as, buckets, gutters, planters, toys, pools, birdbaths, flowerpots or trash containers.
    • Check indoors and outdoors.

In accordance with its plan, Frisco began testing for mosquitoes May 1. For more information on the city’s Mosquito Surveillance and Response Plan, visit or contact the City of Frisco’s Health & Food Safety Division at 972-292-5304.
