City Begins to 'Fight the Bite'
Posted Date: 5/8/2013

In the 2013 battle against blood-thirsty mosquitoes and West Nile Virus, Grand Prairie will ground spray every Thursday and Friday night, weather permitting, from May – October in neighborhoods testing positive for infected mosquitoes. This replaces the city’s previous process of issuing a news release for every positive test and related spray area.

To be notified when new locations are scheduled for spraying, check www.gptx.org/FightTheBite daily, or sign up for any of the following:
