Service Requests in August 2019

This table contains the number of each type of service request in August 2019 compared to the four-year average in August. Total service requests are higher this August than the four-year average. The higher number is largely because of 608 yellowjacket and wasp service requests, which is a record month for the District. Mosquito service requests are near average, even though trap collections show above average mosquito population abundance this summer. Dead birds are lower than usual this summer, because there has been no West Nile virus activity in the bay area this season.


Tick Surveillance at Pacifica Schools

In response to parental concerns about the possibility of children picking up ticks on athletic fields, the District recently conducted tick surveys at seven elementary and middle schools in the Pacifica School District (PSD). Many schools in Pacifica border open spaces that host wildlife and large areas of tick habitat, and are near parks and other outdoor recreation areas where tick exposures are common.  All athletic fields and grassy areas were sampled at each school, as well as any bordering natural habitat that could present a hospitable environment for ticks.
