Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - People in Fargo shouldn't be feeling as many mosquito bites tonight.

Vector Control says the mosquito population is less than half of what it was earlier this week. The crew put in a 16 hour shift overnight, spraying in Cass County.

The average trap count today was around 32. After days of rain those traps will often have around 200 in them. You usually notice mosquitoes when counts are above 30.

Ben Prather, Vector Control: “We should see that number continue to decline. That interval last night was while we were spraying so there were adult mosquitoes flying around under hindered by those products.”

Vector Control will be spraying for mosquitoes, again tonight.

The communities of Hunter, Harwood, Kindred and the Red River Valley Fairgrounds, about 8:30 tonight.

Clay County will begin to spray for mosquitos. It'll be Dilworth and Moorhead tonight, and Dilworth tomorrow night.

It is weather permitting.
