Just heard about this from family - but they say its "too cold to spray." I'm not sure how that works, considering the lows don't get under 50F. any ideas why that might be?

State Officials Announce Seventh Human Case of EEE, Remind Residents to Take Caution

A seventh human case of Eastern Equine Encephalitis was found in Massachusetts yesterday.

A Plymouth County resident was diagnosed with EEE.

A Plymouth County male under the age of 18 was diagnosed with the virus, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health announced.

It is the second human case from Plymouth County. Other human findings have been Middlesex, Worcester, Franklin and Essex Counties. Two of the human findings have resulted in death.

So far, no human cases have been reported in Mansfield or anywhere in Bristol County.

“Summer may be over but the threat of mosquito-borne illness is not — we can expect to continue seeing mosquito activity until the first hard overnight frost,” said DPH State Epidemiologist Dr. Al DeMaria said in a statement. “People need to continue to use insect repellant, cover up exposed skin, and avoid being outdoors at dusk and after nightfall when mosquitoes are at their most active.”
