Aerial Spraying For EEE To Include Livingston County

Aerial Spraying For EEE To Include Livingston County

The County Press will post when the Lapeer County spray will occur as soon as the State or the Lapeer County Health Dept. confirms the schedule.

On this date, Kalamazoo health officials were notified that an aerial mosquito spray would no longer be effective.

Officials said the pesticide, Merus 3.0, will not pose a health risk to humans or animals, including bees and other pollinators as long as they do not come into direct contact.

The state last sprayed mosquitoes in 1980, though communities have sprayed locally to fight outbreaks of the West Nile virus and to control mosquitoes as a nuisance, said Dr. Mary Grace Stobierski, the state's public health veterinarian. So far, there have been nine confirmed human cases and four of those have been fatal. "They are planning on focusing on southern MI again tonight". No special precautions are recommended; however, residents and individuals who have known sensitivities to pyrethrins can reduce potential for exposure by staying indoors during spraying.

Residents who wish to opt out of the spray are asked to email their name and residential address to eee@michigan.gov. "Aerial spraying is not expected to have any impacts on surface water or drinking water". MDHHS press release indicated that the spraying was scheduled to take place starting Sunday, September 29 at 8:00 p.m.

The two areas in Allegan County scheduled for aerial spraying are in the southeast area of Trowbridge Township, where a confirmed deer case was found, and the southeast area of Gun Plain Township, within a 2.5-mile radius of a separate, confirmed deer case in Barry County.

With the ongoing risk of the spread of this disease, aerial treatments continue in areas of the state with the highest risk, according to a release. "This is a tactic other states, including MA and Rhode Island, have recently employed to combat EEE".
