The aerial effort to control mosquitoes in the region resumes this week.
The Air Force Reserve will be back in the air spraying to kill mosquitoes, possibly beginning tonight if the weather cooperates.
An earlier plan to spray for the bugs failed due to equipment problems.
But those issues have been resolved and the Reserve group from Ohio currently plans to spray the cities of Minot, Williston, and Grand Forks, as well as Minot Air Force Base.
The spraying will be done with the Air Force Reserve's C-130 aircraft flying very low over the cities to be treated - about 100 feet off the ground.
The chemical Naled will be sprayed - it's a chemical that officials say is safe for humans and pets, although honeybees can be killed by the spray.
