City of Princeton will spray for mosquitos on September 29

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 9-28-2022

PRINCETON, TEXAS: The City of Princeton received confirmation that one mosquito pool tested “positive” for West Nile Virus (WNV). The location is near East College Street. In response, the city will spray overnight, September 29th starting at 9:00 P.M.

Princeton residents are urged to “Wear, Apply and Remove” as a precaution against mosquito bites. The precautionary steps are promoted by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and outlined below: 

  • WEAR: Wear long sleeves and pants outside at dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are most active.
  • APPLY: Use insect repellants every time you go outside. Approved repellents contain DEET, picaridin, or oil of lemon eucalyptus.
  • REMOVE: Drain standing water that collects in bird baths, French drains, clogged gutters, saucers under potted plants, and "splash blocks" (at end of gutter downspout). The mosquitoes that carry WNV can breed in stagnant water.
