Renville

(Renville MN-) Renville officials are trying to pinpoint the reason for the huge influx of flies this spring. City Council Member Adam Zaske says every day he hears from residents and businesses who are being plagued by flies...

...Zaske says they've tried spraying but can only do it at night when the fly population is down. Residents and businesses in town are trying their own pest control methods. Renville is home to two large ag-related businesses, the Southern Minnesota Beet Sugar Cooperative and Rembrandt Foods. Zaske says they've been working closely with officials at Rembrandt...

...Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor is a major investor in Rembrandt. In the past a fly influx in Renville was traced to Golden Oval Eggs. Zaske says County Environmental Health Specialist Dave Distad is also working the problem.
