WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Officials said the District Department of Transportation's Urban Forestry Administration (UFA) will start spraying the female ginkgo fruits from Wednesday, May 7 to Friday, May 9.

This is to prevent the 'notoriously unpleasant odor of female ginkgo fruit from overtaking city streets', officials said.

The spraying will begin in Wards 1, 2 and 6; where female ginkgo trees are most prevalent and continue through Wards 4, 3, 7, 8 and 5.

Spraying will be done from 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.
