Highland Park to Begin Mosquito Spraying Friday



    A mosquito in Highland Park has tested positive for West Nile virus.

    Another positive test for West Nile virus has been recorded in Dallas County.

    Highland Park confirmed a positive test from a mosquito taken in the southwest portion of the town.

    The town will now begin ground spraying to curtail the spread of the virus.

    Ground spraying will take place overnight Friday beginning at about 10 p.m. and ending at 5 a.m. Saturday.

    Spraying will be postponed due to high wind or rain.

    The town reminds people to remove any standing or stagnant water to prevent mosquitoes from laying eggs. Residents can visit Highland Park's Mosquito Control web page at www.hptx.org for more information.
