City of Dilworth
The City of Dilworth monitors for mosquitoes from the time the snow melts in the spring until freezing conditions return in the fall. The city has two mosquito traps which it uses to monitor mosquito levels. These traps are checked each business day during the mosquito season.

Dilworth city crews base their decision to spray for mosquitoes on trap counts and the nuisance level mosquitoes present in the community. The city gives advance notice of its plans for city-widespraying. Crews may also treat specific "hotspots", parks and the sites of special events.

If you have a comment or question about mosquito control in the City of Dilworth, please contact Milt Opatril at 287-2313.

City of Moorhead
The City of Moorhead provides seasonal control of mosquitoes by surveillance, trap counts, larviciding of wet areas and ditches, citywide ground spraying of adulticide and occasional aerial spraying. We also work closely with
Cass County Vector Control to coordinate spraying. 

The decision to spray citywide is based on trap counts. Regional parks and athletic facilities are sprayed weekly during elevated mosquito activity.
