Due to the ongoing summer rain storms, which result in standing water in the city’s water sewer system, the City of Westland is being proactive in its fight against the summer pest through its annual mosquito abatement program. This program is designed to eliminate mosquito larvae in sewer systems before hatching.
Armed with 10,000 total treatment kits, The Department of Public Service will apply Natural G30 WSP Spinosad Briquettes / pouches to 7,300 catch basins and ditches throughout our community that may pose as a potential mosquito breeding ground. The remaining 2,700 will be available to Homeowners Associations, parks and other potential hot spots.
“The City of Westland is committed to keeping our residents healthy and safe. With the ongoing rain events in southeast Michigan, taking action against mosquitoes will help each resident enjoy Michigan’s summers and the amenities offered by our city,” says Mayor William R. Wild.
The treatment has been approved by Michigan EGLE, (Environment, Great Lakes and Energy), and will not harm water surface water quality.
