  Dear all,

West Nile, When mortality and morbidity reports start in August will 
Michigan residents  then face the same unacceptable practices used in 
New York?

Praxis has had its Vectus Biotool Kit program in West Michigan, that does not use pesticide 
sprays interfered with and discouraged by State of Michigan employees, specifically
the Michigan State University Extension and the Michigan Department of Agriculture.

This has occurred within the last 90 days. 

This behavior is not acceptable, alternatives should be brought to the table 
and considered in a fair and unbiased basis. The State of Michigan should 
stop marketing and endorsing pesticide use and application services.

To learn more about the New York West Nile experience and what their 
citizens did about it, and continue to do see below.

Sincerely,

Samuel  DeFazio
