Williston, ND (KEYZ) Help is on the way to help combat flying pests in the area.

The Williston Vector Control District is tentatively scheduled to conduct aerial and ground adulticide treatments for all spray blocks in the cities of Williston, Ray, Grenora, Epping, and Trenton from Wednesday, June 15th through Sunday, June 19th.

All treatments will take place near sunset, weather and conditions permitting. Vector Control will provide an operational update on the day of treatment.

Zenivex E20 is used for adult mosquito control treatments, which contains the active ingredient Etofenprox, and is a product approved for use in residential areas by the EPA.

To avoid mosquito bites, citizens are advised to take extra precautions when spending time outdoors during the hours of dusk to dawn during the summer months. Wearing long sleeve tight knit shirts and long pants, limiting time outdoors during these times, and using a mosquito repellent such as DEET, Picardin, or oil of lemon eucalyptus are good actions to take to prevent bites. Citizens can help prevent mosquito re-population by eliminating standing water on their property.
