Total service requests this June are low compared to the five-year average (330 requests compared to an average of 378 requests). The lower number is mainly because of fewer than typical yellowjacket/wasp and mosquito service requests. Despite lower than average numbers, yellowjacket and wasp service requests have risen sharply over the past month, which is expected in the summer. Mosquito requests have also climbed in number, although more gradually. The “other” category included a variety of insect-related requests regarding midges, cockroaches, fleas, bees, and flies and non-insect requests concerning ticks and mites.
