Integrated Pest Management Plan

Imlay City Community Schools will conduct mosquito control spraying in response to the threat of  Eastern Equine Encephalitis.  Ultra-Low Volume (ULV) spraying will be used to control  mosquitoes around the perimeters of the district property.  The spraying will take place September 29, 2019.  These areas will be clearly marked.  Do not use the property.  The spray has an approximate dry time of one hour.  The district will be ready for use on September 30, 2019.

We will not be spraying areas in which are in use by students or staff such as, playgrounds, athletic fields, practice fields, parking lots, in or around buildings.  We are only spraying in areas around the perimeter of the district that are likely for mosquito habitat. People should avoid outdoor activities on the school grounds the day of spraying. 

While not all mosquitoes carry the disease, the Imlay City School district suggests that residents take precautions to minimize their exposure to mosquito bites. These measures include:

  • Wear long, loose fitting, light colored clothing
  • Wear insect repellents according to product labels
  • Avoid mosquito infested areas during prime periods of activity (between dusk and dawn)
  • Install, inspect, and repair window and door screens in homes and stables
  • Regularly clean bird baths and bowls for pet food and water
  • Remove or empty all water-holding containers
