Julie Stallcup, City of Frisco Environmental Health Supervisor, said: “As summer has progressed, we’ve seen an increase in the number of mosquitoes caught per trap as well as the number of positive mosquitoes in those traps. One bite from an infected mosquito increases your risk of getting sick. We encourage everyone to actively follow the four precautionary habits to help decrease your chances of being bitten by a mosquito.”
In accordance with its plan, Frisco began testing for mosquitoes May 1.
