WILLISTON, N.D. (KUMV) - The United States Air Force will make a mosquito spraying trip around Williston within the next two weeks.

Vector Control officials said the 910th Airlift Wing from Youngstown, Ohio will be spraying larvicide along the Missouri River. Their goal is to target larvae around the area to prevent them from becoming adult mosquitoes. The mission will occur between May 31 and June 8.

It would be the first time the Air Force has sprayed in Williston since 2019.

The City of Minot has also announced two planned sprayings by the 910th. The first will be between July 17 to 21 and another the week of August 7.
