Winnipeg is all abuzz about the city's mosquito-control policy.

City council has approved a motion to examine the methods Winnipeg uses to kill the insects, including spraying malathion.

The city says it is getting numerous complaints about the number of mosquitoes in residential neighbourhoods.

The review will look at scrapping a policy that allows homeowners to say "no" to spraying around their property.
