    The Plano Environmental Health Department say they've found West Nile virus in mosquitoes in the 75075 zip code.

    As a result, the department will increase testing of mosquitoes in the area and will monitor the need for additional use of larvicide or spraying.

    Informational flyers will be distributed to area businesses and residents within the next week.

    On the city's website, they report they'll be spraying between June 29 and July 1, weather permitting. The spraying will take place by Park Boulevard on the north, Peachtree Lane on the east, 18th Street on the south, and Jupiter Road on the west. People in the area should avoid the outdoors and bring pets indoors between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m.
