Dallas could start spraying for mosquitoes early

- Members of the Dallas City Council are meeting Monday to discuss starting the city’s mosquito abatement program a month early.

The Quality of Life and Environmental Committee will hear a proposal from the assistant city manager. He wants to begin spraying and a public education campaign on March 1.

The Zika virus is spread primarily through infected mosquitoes. It’s been deemed a public health emergency.

So far all of the cases reported locally have been related to travel in other countries. One local case was also transmitted sexually.
