The City’s mission is to assist in reducing health risks to our community. Mosquitoes are more than a nuisance; they are a major threat to public health. In the City of Southlake, we use proven, effective methods to control mosquitoes and reduce the risk of mosquito-transmitted diseases such as West Nile Virus (WNV), Chikungunyua (CHIKV), Dengue Fever (DNV), St. Louis Encephalitis (SLEV) and Zika (ZIKV): all either endemic or potential diseases in the North Texas Region.
The City of Southlake follows the Center for Disease Control’s recommended Integrated Vector Management (IVM). You can learn more about Southlake’s Vector Control Plan as well as the latest news here on our website.
