Service Requests for September 2018

This table contains the number of each type of service request in September 2018 compared to the three-year average in September. Mosquito service requests continue to be well below average this year. This low number of mosquito requests reflects an effective catch basin treatment program and few media reports on mosquito-borne diseases this summer. Yellow jacket and wasp requests are the most abundant type of request in the summer and have been especially numerous this year, although the numbers are dropping from a peak in August.
