The City of McKinney has an active program for assessing the numbers and types of mosquitoes in various locations. Mosquito control technicians began larviciding standing water locations in March and setting traps in May throughout the city. Trapped mosquitoes are tested for West Nile Virus. Dead birds will not be tested, but residents are encouraged to call and report dead birds as this may be an area that mosquitoes could be tested for West Nile Virus. Contact 972-547-7447.
