The next time you complain about the cool spring, you might want to consider this story.
The warm weather started the mosquito larviciding season about 10 days earlier than usual.
However, the city’s head of insect control, Ken Nawolsky tells us the cool weather afterwards helps keep them at bay.
“Temperature influences how rapidly they develop in the water. We’re fortunate that the temperatures are cooling down now, so it allows us plenty of opportunity to get to all those sites that need treatment,” said Nawolsky.
He adds half of all standing water is on private property.
The city is asking you to dump, drain or cover all standing water on private land to help out.
