ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) - Arlington is about to launch spraying for West Nile Virus after its first infected mosquito was found on the city’s south side.   The mosquito was found in a trap near Caliente and Commander Court, north of Green Oaks.

Ground spraying will start on Sunday night and continue Monday night, from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. both days.  Spraying will take place in a half-mile radius of where the infected mosquito was found using an ultra-low volume application of Permanone RTU, according to the city.

This year, Arlington set up 21 traps across the city to collect for mosquitoes.  By this time last year, Arlington had 48 human cases of West Nile Virus.  So far in 2013, no human cases have been reported.
