This will happen beginning tomorrow evening. It’s important to remind the chemicals are safe for people and pets

 

City of Minot Partners in Aerial Mosquito Control Minot N.D --- Aircrafts will take flight this week in an effort to ground the risk of mosquitos in the City of Minot area.

 

On Wednesday, July 20th through Thursday, July 21st the City of Minot, in conjunction with the Minot Air Force Base and the Ohio Air National Guard, will aerial spray for mosquitoes.

 

Low Flying, C-130 aircraft's may be seen across the city skyline on those evenings.

 

Residents are reminded that the mixture being released, known as Naled, is not harmful to the general population, pets and wildlife when applied using this method. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Naled is applied as an ultra-low volume (ULV) spray.

 

ULV sprayers dispense very fine aerosol droplets containing small quantities of active ingredient insecticide that drift through the air and kill mosquitoes on contact.

 

The amount that reaches the ground is small. For mosquito control, the maximum rate for ground and aerial application is very small.

 

Naled is highly toxic to insects, including honeybees.
