A truck sprays insecticide in Dallas in 2016.

Denton County health officials said Friday that trucks would be spraying insecticide for West Nile virus prevention in the Paloma Creek area Friday through Sunday.

Health officials said the spraying is in response to a nearby mosquito trap testing positive for West Nile. The truck-based spraying will run from 9 p.m. overnight to 5 a.m. the next day from Friday through Sunday, a news release states.

Trucks will run in the neighborhoods surrounding Paloma Creek Boulevard north and south of U.S. Highway 380, Denton County Public Health officials said.
