Grand Forks - The Cities of Grand Forks and East Grand Forks have scheduled citywide spraying for mosquitoes Thursday, June 20, 2013, between 8:30 p.m. and midnight. Today's mosquito trap count is 39.
The adulticiding equipment is noisy and travels at 10 mph. The electric sprayers are relatively quiet. The mosquito control trucks are identified and travel with a flashing yellow light. Residents may want to go inside just before their area is sprayed and stay inside for 20-30 minutes until the aerosol cloud dissipates. Residents should not run, walk or bike directly through the aerosol cloud behind the insecticide sprayer. Also, anyone who is sensitive to chemicals may want to close their windows during the ground spraying.
