Michigan City Announces 2017 Mosquito Spraying
By: Michigan City Last Updated: July 25, 2017

The City of Michigan City is announcing that mosquito adulticiding (spraying for adult mosquito control) is scheduled for Wednesday, July 26th or Thursday, July 27th (weather determining and permitting.) When spraying occurs, it will commence at dusk and continue through the night until finished. The city asks the public to be alert when they see trucks with flashing lights and a spraying ULV machine, and to please give them plenty of room.

The public can help the City by policing their yard and home for these type of items:

  • Get rid of old tires, tin cans, buckets, drums, bottles or any water holding containers
  • Fill in or drain any low places (puddles, ruts) in yard
  • Clean gutters periodically
  • Keep drains, ditches & culverts clean of weeds & trash so water will drain properly
  • Cover trash containers to keep out rain water
  • Repair leaky pipes & outside faucets
  • Empty plastic wading pools at least once a week & store them indoors when not in use
  • Make sure your backyard pool is properly cared for while on vacation
  • Fill in tree rot holes & hollow stumps that hold water with sand or concrete
  • Change water in bird baths & plant pots or drip trays at least once a week
  • Keep grass cut short & shrubbery well-trimmed around the house so adult mosquitoes will not hide there

The city would like to thank our residents for their patience and any active participation in making the community more livable, safe, and comfortable.
