There is a very direct relationship between the amount of standing water the number of mosquitoes we have during the year. The more rainfall and flooding the more likely it will be a bad year. There are exceptions, but they are not very common.

Adulticide treatments occur near sunset when mosquitoes are most active and sprays can be the most effective. In the summertime that can mean 10 pm or later. Depending on the application method you may or may not even hear or see the vehicle. Aerial applications are conducted with either a helicopter (rural areas) or airplane (urban areas) and have a swath width of 1,000 feet. The aircraft may not even fly over your property, but you are being treated. Ground vehicles drive past your property going 10-15 mph and avoid doubling back on themselves.

Larvicide treatments occur throughout spring, summer and fall, but typically occur in unpopulated areas, so those are also not very visible. Larvicide treatments also occur via air and ground. Aerial applications often take place just after dawn or before sunset when weather is calm. Ground applications often use residual products that are effective for 3 to 4 weeks, so even if an area is wet, it likely has already been treated.

Larvicides are much more effective than adulticides for two major reasons:

  1. Immature mosquitoes (larva) are only found in standing water, and
  2. The pesticides we use are very specific to mosquito larva.

Adulticides are less specific to mosquitoes, are susceptible to weather conditions, and necessitate that an adult mosquito must encounter a spray droplet. Mosquito adulticides offer no residual activity and are quickly rendered inert when exposed to sunlight. However, both components are part of an integrated vector control program and accomplish very different tasks.

Read more about treatments on our Types of Vector Control webpage.

Vector control treatments conducted by the U.S. Air Force Reserve (USAFR) are only a request. The USAFR has the ability cancel or change their plans with little prior notice. Spray requests are scheduled 2 years in advance. This makes targeting their arrival date very difficult. Some years all the pieces come together and others it does not. Additionally, there are several state and federal regulations that must be addressed before they are able to spray, and when the regulatory landscape changes, USAFR sprays may be canceled. Williams County Vector Control actively works with the USAFR to anticipate these changes, but it can take months before a resolution is found.

The USAFR only sprays a small proportion of the total annual spray acreages that the Williams County Vector Control District does. The rest is treated through an aerial contractor using much smaller and more versatile aircraft.

We operate a variety of mosquito traps that are dispersed throughout the county and its municipalities. We collect these traps on a daily basis, excluding weekends and holidays. Traps are counted and the numbers of individual species are recorded. Pools of mosquitoes are then tested for the presence of harmful diseases like West Nile virus.

To see average trap counts for Williston, Ray, and Grenora, visit our Trap Counts webpage.

Guidelines | The Williams County Vector Control District (WVCD) follows the most current guidelines from both the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the North Dakota Department of Health (NDDoH) when responding to the detection of a vector borne disease like West Nile Virus.

Risk Assessment | Vector Control uses a risk assessment calculator provided by a software program called VectorSurv. This calculator is adapted from the CDC and is used as a general guide for assessing the overall risk of an area. There are five surveillance categories where risk ranges from 1 (lowest risk) to 5 (highest risk). These categories and risk levels provide a general guide for district operations. Three of the 5 risk assessment categories are used: Environment, Abundance, and Infection. The other two, Seroconversion and Dead Bird Infections, are not used by Vector Control. These three are averaged to provide an overall risk. Additional details can be found on the VectoSurv website.

Mosquito Surveillance | Vector Control performs routine mosquito surveillance within the district using a network of mosquito traps. These traps are spread throughout the district and are designed to attract and catch various species of adult mosquito. Some of the traps are collected daily (excluding weekends/holidays) while others are placed during specific times and dates to focus on problem areas. A special type of trap is used when looking for mosquitoes that could be carrying a disease, such as West Nile Virus. These traps are designed to collect adult mosquitoes without killing them. Once the traps are emptied, the mosquitoes are quickly frozen and used for disease testing.

Testing | Vector Control uses a process called Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) to test mosquitoes for West Nile Virus (WNV), Saint Louis Encephalomyelitis virus (SLE), and Western Equine Encephalomyelitis virus (WEE). The use of PCR allows the district to quickly test for these diseases and to develop an appropriate action plan to mitigate the spread of these diseases to humans. If any of these viruses are detected in a mosquito pool, the district notifies the NDDoH, the local emergency rooms, and schedules a spray event for the area surrounding the collection site. This area will continue to be monitored until no virus is detected, after which normal surveillance resumes.

Action Thresholds | In addition to disease surveillance, Vector Control also manages nuisance mosquitoes common to the area. A set of action thresholds are defined for different classes of mosquito (nuisance VS disease vector). Once a threshold is reached, operations to manage the adult mosquito populations are initiated. An increase in the chance of disease transmission is not the only threshold used for increasing mosquito control activities. These include both aerial and ground sprays using an Ultra-Low Volume (ULV) application of a pesticide.

One of the most effective things you can do is to remove any standing water you may have on your property. This can be flower pots that hold water, baby pools, or old tires you have laying around. Source reduction is the best way to combat mosquitoes!

If you have noticed an increase in the mosquito population in your area, you can submit a Vector Control Service Request. Service Requests help us to find unknown mosquito development sites and pinpoint problematic areas.

The North Dakota Fire Danger Rating is a broad scale assessment that is issued each morning at approximately 6:45 CST during fire season by the U.S. Forest Service (USFS). The fire season is typically from April 1st to October 31st. The USFS calculates the Fire Danger Rating using grassland fuel moisture, forecast temperature, humidity, wind speed, and topography.

Device controlled fires, such as those from a grill, fire table, or gas camp stove, are not addressed under the burn restriction, but the operator should always practice proper fire prevention. They should be located on a hard, non-organic surface at least 15 feet away from vegetation and a fire extinguisher or water should be available on-site. Visit the Burning in Williams County webpage for more information.

There may be additional localized restrictions, so it is always best to contact your local fire district for more information.

Campfires, even if they are in a fire ring, are *not* permitted when the Williams County Burn Restriction is in effect. For more information about the Burn Restriction, please visit the Burning in Williams County webpage.

There may be additional localized restrictions, so it is always best to contact your local fire district for more information.

A Fire Emergency and Automatic Burn Restriction is in effect from February 6, 2024, through December 31, 2024, whenever the ND Fire Danger Index is in the VERY HIGH, or EXTREME status and/or a Red Flag Warning has been issued for Williams County. Check the Burning in Williams County webpage for the Fire Danger Rating and Red Flag Warning status. Always check BEFORE you burn!

What is included in the ban?
The restriction includes the ignition of fireworks, garbage burning, campfires, burning of farm or crop land, and unnecessary off-road motorized travel. Burning will be allowed with a Low, Moderate, or High Fire Danger Rating or upon approval of the local fire response authority having jurisdiction over the designated area.

What is not included in the ban?
Device controlled fires, such as those from a grill, fire table, or gas camp stove, are not addressed under the burn ban, but the operator should always practice proper fire prevention. When the Fire Danger Rating is HIGH or greater, the device should be on a hard non-organic surface at least 15 feet away from dry vegetation.

Any individual who willfully violates the Burn Restriction is guilty of a Class B Misdemeanor (NDCC 37-17.1.10.1: MAXIMUM SENTENCE OF 30 DAYS IN JAIL AND A $1500.00 FINE).

The Williams County Sheriff’s Office is a participating agency in NDTip, a service that enables citizens to submit anonymous tips about crimes, suspicious activity, or non-emergency traffic concerns.

Per ND Century Code 29-08-28, when posting bond for another person, the money becomes the property of the defendant and will be applied to any fines resulting from the disposition of their case. If the defendant does not appear in court, the bond will be forfeited. Any money refunded will be given to the defendant.

Real Estate Taxes

Annual real estate taxes are mailed mid-December each year. The payment of taxes is divided into two equal payments, but if taxes are paid in full on or before February 15th, you will receive a 5% discount on the consolidated tax. Postmarked dates are accepted when figuring payment dates for taxes.

The first half is due on or before March 1st and the second half is due on or before October 15th.

Your most recent tax bill can be accessed and downloaded by visiting iTax, our online property tax system. If you have questions about your tax bill, please contact the Treasurer’s Office.

Search by your parcel number, name, OR address. On your property record page, click “Show Current Tax Bill” in the center of the page.

 

To find out the payoff balance for city special assessments, please contact the City directly.

The payoff balance for special assessments managed by Williams County can be found using the iTax system. First, search for your property. Then, on the property record page, select “Detail” in the center box titled “Taxes.” The table will show your Bond Principal and Interest owed for the current tax year, but also the Balance to pay off. For questions about County-managed specials, please contact the Finance Department.

Instead of getting several separate bills, you get one property tax statement from Williams County, and we distribute your payment to each of the other entities.

Both the value of the mill AND the number of mills can affect your tax bill. If the same number of mills are on your tax statement this year as there were last year, but your home’s value increased by 5%, your tax bill will rise by 5% as well. Learn about how your property tax bill is calculated with Property Tax Basics.
