Notice how the elite Governmental powers that be, this time the Whitmer Administration, is totally non-responsive to citizen complaints that this mass spraying against mosquitoes and insects in general is ecologically irresponsible and wrong.

Thanks for posting the link, Curt. I've put it up on Washtenaw Audubon's FB Page, and it's been shared by Washtenaw Safe Passage.
I also messaged Matthaei Botanical Gardens and Nichols Arboretum, both University of Michigan properties and requested that they look into opting out, including the
Washtenaw Audubon Society

If you are receiving this message it means we have not recorded your address and the survey link above must be used to request an opt-out. Only requests completed from the link above which contain the full address of the property and are received at least 48 hours in advance of planned spraying activities can be added to the opt-out list. If you are unable to use the website survey link, please call the MDHHS EEE phone number at: 517-335-8165 during the hours of 8AM-8PM.
Note: when your property is excluded, an additional barrier of 1,000 square feet around your property will also be excluded from spraying. Excluding your property can affect the ability of others to protect themselves against mosquito-borne illnesses near your property.
