Regina City crews are keeping on top of the number of mosquitoes in and around the city.
With a relatively dry period over the last week or so, the amount of standing water has significantly gone down, which means mosquitoes haven’t been able to hatch.
City of Regina spokesperson Russel Eirich said mosquito numbers are down this year.
“Last week, ending last Friday, we trapped roughly 12 mosquitoes per trap across the city,” Eirich said. “Compare that to our historical average of about 20 mosquitoes per trap, we’re still below average.”
Eirich said there’s only been about 12 mosquitoes per trap caught within the city.
“Now outside the city, we’re seeing a lot more activity, so if you go outside our mosquito control zone, our counts were actually 148 mosquitoes per trap.”
The traps set up outside the city are in Zehner and Balgonie.
