WILLISTON (AP) -- Williston's mosquito control official is says residents should not expect miracles.

Residents voted in November to pay another $2 a month to their mosquito control district.

Vector control director Fran Bosch says the city's mosquito problem won't immediately go away, even with the extra funds to battle the biting bugs.

The additional money will help pay the Air Force to spray the area with C-130 planes.

The Williston region has long had mosquito problems because the Missouri River often floods low-lying areas in the spring, creating thousands of acres of standing water that are ideal for mosquito breeding.
