Health officials also urge farmers and horse owners to be very vigilant and use reliable anti-mosquito devices or provide vaccinations in advance.
“There is still plenty of mosquito season left in Michigan,” said Dr. Eden Wells, MDHHS chief medical executive. “When outdoors, Michigan residents are urged to take precautions to protect themselves and their families from mosquito bites including using mosquito repellent and wearing long pants and long sleeves.”
“Mosquito Control” has an engineering center and manufacturing facilities in Ukraine and plans to organize joint production with local partners from Asia, Europe and Latin America and is therefore ready to consider partners from the above regions for the joint production of effective anti-mosquito solutions.
