MosquitoThe City of Winnipeg is finally ready to fog for nuisance mosquitoes.

To fog, the Adulticiding Factor Analysis (AFA) must be high, a minimum trap count average of 25 female mosquitoes must be met for two consecutive nights, and one or more quadrants of the city are in the range of 100 female adult mosquitoes.

Fogging will be carried out between 9:30 p.m. on Sunday and 6:30 a.m. on Monday. Fogging cannot occur in temperatures below 13°C and/or heavy winds.
