Heart of Hollow to be Sprayed Tonight

The city plans to spray for West Nile virus in the shaded area tonight, from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. Per the official press release:

While the insecticide is considered safe, residents in the above areas should avoid contact with the spray by staying indoors. Persons inside a vehicle while trucks are actively spraying should remain in their vehicles with the windows up and the air conditioner on until the trucks pass and the spray is no longer visible. Persons out during the scheduled spraying time should be alert for trucks and should not follow them. Residents who come in contact with the spray are advised to wash the affected area thoroughly with soap and water. The spray breaks down quickly in the presence of sunlight and has no residual effect. Fish ponds should be protected and pets should be brought inside during the spraying period.

Don’t get bit, y’all.

    I just got an email from the City of Dallas that said spraying would be done Wednesday night, July 18, in this neighborhood. We were also told a week or so ago they were spraying and, evidently, that didn’t happen.

    The city can’t get its story straight. Last week’s release said the spraying would be tonight. Today’s release said Wednesday night. Neither release had the proper map of the affected area; hence, my homemade version.
