Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- Get ready to see a low flying plane in the metro area this evening.

Aerial spraying will begin for Fargo, West Fargo, Moorhead and parts of Cass County around eight o'clock.

An aircraft filled with hundreds of gallons of mosquito spray will take to the skies, until about eleven-thirty.

Mosquitoes are still rampant after ground spraying last week.

Dean Solum- Airborne Custom Straying: "The airplane actually covers the entire area. It's a blanket coverage. When we're fogging by ground, we don't always get the back of the yards, the top of the trees, the eave troughs. Areas that mosquitoes are habituating that are just really difficult to get to."

Tomorrow night, Oxbow, Frontier and Oak Port Township will be aerial sprayed.
