City fogging crews will hit the streets tonight to finish where they left off Saturday night.
High winds forced crews to suspend fogging early last night but weather permitting, they’re be back out, tackling the south, east and west ends of the city.
The city’s insect control branch conducts mosquito fogging between 9:30 p.m. and 6:30 a.m. Environment Canada called for the risk of a thunderstorm late this afternoon with the wind dying down afterward.
Fogging trucks are due to finish up in the south end from Niakwa Place in the east to Assiniboine Downs in the west.
Then the crews will pick up Sunday’s schedule, starting in East Kildonan and working through St. Boniface. Also on the list are most of the southwest parts of the city from Osborne Street, Crescentwood and River Heights, through Whyte Ridge and Linden Woods.
The city’s mosquito trap count was high, a notice on the city’s website said today. The average count in the city Sunday is 41. Outside the city, counts range up to 392 in some municipalities.
