Mosquito spraying has been scheduled between 8 p.m. and midnight tonight for Grand Forks.

Thursday's average mosquito trap count in Grand Forks was 14.

The Grand Forks Public Health Department urges citizens to protect themselves from being bitten because it's the peak season for human West Nile virus cases. People more than 50 years old are most at risk.

Mosquito control trucks travel with a flashing yellow light at about 10 miles an hour. Residents should not run, walk or bike directly through the aerosol cloud behind the sprayer. Residents may want to stay inside for about a half hour until the cloud dissipates. Beekeepers are advised to cover hives.

Spraying will be suspended if winds higher than 10 miles an hour or inclement weather occur.
