There is not a lot to complain about during summer except for pesky and annoying insects.
Drumheller could be experiencing a more noticeable presence of mosquitoes due to recent rainy weather
"We're going to be out there doing more larviciding and checking our traps," said Darryl Drohomerski. "We're keeping an eye on it as we plan to do all summer and to assess where we can do treatments."
"We've really had a dry few weeks and that is fantastic on the way it dries out areas that can breed mosquitoes," explained Drohomerski. "Let's hope we don't get much rain and minimize the nuisance of mosquitoes."
"If you are on a rural or even urban property, if you have tires that could contain water make sure you dump it out," advised Drohomerski. "Cycle the water of any bird baths or fountains so that it doesn't go stagnant on you. They don't need much water to get going."
He added to make sure to squeegee water away on your property to ensure mosquitoes do not lay their eggs.
