The air force aerial spray squadron will spray the Grand Forks Air Force Base for mosquitoes this week and may also spray the cities of Grand Forks and East Grand Forks.

If it is determined that the cities should be sprayed, it will happen between the hours of 7:00 and 10:00 pm Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday night, depending on weather conditions.

The C-130 cargo plane will fly at very low levels over the towns.

Beekeepers are advised to cover their hives during the spraying, as the chemical can be toxic to bees.
