ARCADIA TWP. — Due to continued inclement weather conditions, the State of Michigan has still yet to conduct an aerial spray application of a botanical pesticide in the Lum area of Lapeer County to combat the mosquito-borne Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) virus.

The State plans this evening to spray in eight southwest and west Michigan counties. 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. Mosquito control is weather-dependent. Wind speeds, temperature and precipitation on the ground and in the air may affect spraying.
