#5 West Nile Mosquito Detected 400 Bartlett

The Corpus Christi Animal Control and Vector Services received a confirmation of West Nile virus in a mosquito in the 400 Block Bartlett from a test that was submitted July 12, 2016.

Vector Services has implemented the Mosquito Management Response Plan to this detection. The response entails the following:

  1.  The spraying of a 1/2 mile radius around the area of the detection for three consecutive nights beginning tonight.
  2. Police Directed Patrol Officers and Neighborhood Services personnel will be attempting to locate any standing water in the affected neighborhood including examining abandoned properties.
  3. Vector Services will conduct continuing surveillance of mosquito traps in the immediate area for signs of the Culex species of mosquito responsible for West Nile virus.

The need to spray a larger area is not necessary based on the entomology of the Culex species mosquito and the normal travel distance of this mosquito. Vector Control will be conducting the aerial spray in the evening, and at dusk, since that is the time the Culex is most active. Residents are reminded to check their property for standing water and to avoid, if possible, outdoor activities at dusk and dawn, wear long sleeve shirts and long pants. Use appropriate mosquito repellent with DEET for themselves and their children. Please call 361-826-2489 if you wish to report abandoned property or high grass or standing water.
