Mosquito fogging coming to West St. Paul this weekend

Mosquito fogging trucks from the City of Winnipeg will be in the Rural Municipality of West St. Paul this weekend.

The municipality, located just north of the city, will undergo fogging with the insecticide malathion on Saturday starting at 9:30 p.m., weather permitting.

Officials in West St. Paul say it should take about four or five hours to fog the area.

The city has a contract with surrounding rural municipalities for mosquito fogging services.

In Winnipeg, nuisance mosquito trap counts ranged between 10 and 23 on Thursday, with the counts generally much higher in the southwest quadrant of the city.
