The cities of Grand Forks and East Grand Forks have scheduled citywide mosquito spraying for tonight, Friday July 1. The mosquito trap count Friday was 59. On Thursday, it was 8.

Mosquito control trucks will drive through city streets with a flashing light at about 10 mph.

Residents should stay inside for 20 to 30 minutes until the aerosol cloud from the trucks dissipates. Residents should not run, walk or bike directly through the aerosol cloud behind the sprayer.

If you're sensitive to chemicals, you should close your windows during the ground spraying.

If wind speeds are higher than 10 mph or weather changes, the spraying may be rescheduled.
