C-130 Will Spray GF/EGF for Mosquitos Thursday Night

Air Force plane will starting low-level passes at 7:30 PM

The cities of Grand Forks and East Grand Forks will bring in the heavy artillery to battle mosquitos this week.

An Air Force C-130 plan will buzz the towns Thursday night spraying insecticide on its low-level passes.

The cities had planned an aerial spraying earlier this summer, but the weather did not cooperate.

The plane will start spraying around 7:30 Thursday night and will conclude at sunset, weather permitting.
