The total number of service requests were higher this March than the five-year average (205 requests compared to an average of 143 requests). All categories are above or at average for the month. Mosquito service requests were the most numerous, perhaps because of some warm sunny days with intermittent rainy weather, which brought people and mosquitoes into contact. Rodent service-related requests have been dropping since a winter peak, which is typical. Tick-related requests also declined as the District concluded for the season a study of adult ticks in residential yards.

The “other” category included insect-related requests regarding crane flies and several concerning bees.
