City of Grand Forks North Dakota - Citywide Mosquito Spraying Scheduled for Tonight Wednesday August 3rd 03 August 2022 ( news )

City of Grand Forks , state North Dakota
| 19| 2
   The Cities of Grand Forks and East Grand Forks have scheduled citywide spraying for 
   mosquitoes for tonight , Wednesday , August 3 , 2022 , between 8:00 p . m . and 1:00 a . m .
   West Nile virus has been identified in the Grand Forks region . The cities of Grand Forks and East 
   Grand Forks urge citizens to take extra precautions to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes .
   The mosquito most common for transmitting West Nile virus is the Culex tarsalis . This mosquito is 
......   most active from sundown and throughout the night into the early morning hours . To help reduce your 
   risk of getting West Nile virus , the Health Department recommends the following protective 
   measures:
   •  Use insect repellent that contains DEET .
   •  Limit outdoor activities between dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active .
   •  Wear long pants and long‐sleeved shirts when possible .
   •  Eliminate standing water around homes ( e . g . , buckets , flowerpots , old tires , wading pools and 
   birdbaths ) .
   Most of the mosquito control spray equipment is noisy and will be traveling at 10‐15 mph while 
   spraying . Grand Forks has a couple electric sprayers that are relatively quiet . The mosquito 
   control trucks are identified and travel with flashing yellow lights . To ensure spray effectiveness 
   during the spray operation , winds should be 10 mph or less and no inclement weather present . Winds 
   higher than 10 mph or inclement weather may result in the spraying being suspended until conditions 
   improve .
