There’s still a lot of summer to be had if the mosquito fogging trucks need to roll out again.
The City of Winnipeg says the current trap count for nuisance mosquitoes is 77, or “high” on the adulticiding factor analysis (AFA) rating.
Crews will begin fogging Thursday evening between 9:30 p.m. and 6:30 a.m. on Friday.
In order for the city to fog, the minimum city-wide average trap count needs to be 25 female mosquitoes for two consecutive nights, and one or more of the quadrants of the city are in the range of 100 female adult mosquitoes.
The city will provide 24 hours notice to the public when spraying will occur. To find your Insect Management Area, consult the city’s website or call 311.
Buffer zones can also be requested using the same channels.
