The total number of service requests this December are above the five year average for the month (169 compared to an average of 124). This is is because of a substantial increase in rodent and tick requests during December. Tick requests are higher than average because of a project involving residential yard tick inspections that has only been underway for only one year. As the District re-starts its checks for ticks in residential backyards, the number of tick-related service requests has started to increase, and will continue to increase over the next few months.

The“other” category included arthropod-related requests regarding mites, bees, gnats and ants.
