Rockford schools to spray for mosquitoes

ROCKFORD, Mich. — Areas near Rockford schools will be treated for mosquitoes this week.

All Rockford elementary schools, RAMS Stadium, North Rockford Middle School and Ted Carlson Stadium will receive a mosquito control application on Thursday, weather-permitting.

Signs will be posted around the treated areas. People are advised to stay away from those areas until the treatment has dried, which typically takes about 30 minutes.

Applications won’t be done near school buildings or playgrounds during school hours.

Anyone with questions can contact Shawn Hayward at 616-863-6330.

Michigan’s health department has treated portions of several counties in West Michigan to fight Eastern equine encephalitis.

The final area in northern Van Buren County is expected to be treated Monday night.
