Midland County Begins Spring Aerial Mosquito Treatment
Midland County Mosquito Control will be conducting aerial larviciding for mosquitoes beginning Monday, April 23, 2018 and may take up to 14 days to complete, weather permitting. Airplane tail numbers are as follows: N30454, N9152F, N8499K, N4016H and N4533J and will be conducting repetitive flights over woodland. Midland County residents can take a look and see if they are included in the aerial program on our website at https://www.co.midland.mi.us/MosquitoControl/SpringAerialSchedule.aspx. Vectobac 12AS liquid and Vectobac G granular Bti (Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis) will be applied to woodland pools in the highlighted areas by airplane between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and dusk as weather permits. The material used in this program is a naturally-occurring soil bacterium which is toxic to mosquitoes and related biting flies but nontoxic for humans, pets and all other life forms.
In addition to the areas treated by airplanes, Mosquito Control crews will be treating additional woodland pools during April and May. Residents with questions about the program can call Mosquito Control at (989) 832-8677.
