Mosquito spraying resumes this week

The City of Minot, in conjunction with Minot Air Force Base and Ohio National Guard, will conduct aerial spraying for mosquito control this week.

The spraying is scheduled to take place any evening in which weather conditions are suitable. The spraying involves a C-130, a large military aircraft, that will make low altitude passes over the city.

The active ingredient in the mosquito control spray is Naled. Information about Naled is available on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency website (www.epa.gov). Residents with questions may contact the Public Works Department at 857-4140.
