SCHERTZ -- The city of Schertz is taking preventative measures against the West Nile virus by dropping mosquito larvae-killing tablets in standing water, but some residents don't think that's enough.
Jennifer Bridges is one of those residents.
"I'd like to see some fogging trucks out here or some airplanes dropping their fogging materials," Bridges said .
Bridges said she understands Schertz isn't nearly as big as municipalities to the north, where crews have launched aerial assaults against the blood-sucking pests.
"We may be a smaller city than Dallas but our concerns are just as high as anybody else because it's just as serious," Bridges said.
No cases of West Nile have been reported in Schertz this year.
Still, city official are urging residents to take precautions, just as the city is taking precautions by targeting mosquito larvae in the city's ponds and other problem areas.
"It won't stop West Nile," said Christopher Meek, emergency management coordinator for Schertz. "It will just kill the mosquito larva and one briquette covers 100 square feet."
