Irving city now has ten human cases of West Nile and that makes residents worried.
The city says it sprays around Irving often, but also offers personal mosquito traps as peace of mind for residents. If a resident wants a trap they have to call the city’s mosquito hotline at 972-721-3755.
The stinky trap is meant to mimic stagnant water and attract female mosquitoes in the area. The trap has a fan which is supposed to suck up the mosquitoes and keep them in the net.
