Maps Show Exact Areas to Be Sprayed for Mosquitoes in MI”

So far, there have been nine confirmed human cases in MI.

As a result of EEE activity spreading to more counties, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is advising residents and organizations to cancel, postpone or reschedule any outdoor activity after dusk - especially if they involve children.

"The mosquitos that spread EEE are still active and were caught in traps set October 1 in southwest Michigan", stated the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services in a press release.

On this date, Kalamazoo health officials were notified that an aerial mosquito spray would no longer be effective. According to health officials, the disease is spread from a mosquito carrying the viruses.

The pesticide being used is Merus 3.0, an organic pesticide containing 5 percent pyrethrin, according to the MDHHS.

State health officials are urging residents of Genesee and Lapeer counties to take extra precautions against mosquitoes after animals with Eastern Equine Encephalitis were euthanized.

Despite that, they said Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development rules allowed individuals to voluntarily opt out of the application. But in order to remove one's property from the spray zone, a 48-hour notice in advance of scheduled spraying must be given to state officials.

Anyone who is concerned about the spraying process can email eee@michigan.gov.

Spraying will be done overnight.

"Aerial treatment will continue, depending on weather (temperature, cloud cover, wind and rain) until all areas of risk are treated or there is a hard frost, sufficient to kill mosquitos", stated the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services in a press release. ULV sprayers dispense very fine aerosol droplets that stay suspended in the air and kill adult mosquitoes on contact.

The nighttime spraying is timed for when mosquitos are more active, fish are less likely to be at the surface feeding and honeybees are most likely to be in their hives.
