GF/EGF Mosquito Spraying Canceled Friday night

Weather conditions lead to cancellation. Crews will spray Saturday night.

The wind and rain were too much for mosquito spray crews in Grand Forks and East Grand Forks Friday night (June 18). The spraying in both communities was canceled due to the conditions.

Crews will do a rare Saturday night spraying to make up for the missed date with the sprayer. Trucks will head out about 8:00 p.m. Saturday night and should be done at midnight.

The mosquito trap count in Grand Forks was only 4 on Friday morning, but Mosquito Control says that number is artificially low due to the overnight windy conditions. Trap counts were over 100 earlier in the week and one spraying has already been done.
