Morrow bioscience has been handling the mosquito control for the Fraser Valley Regional District, and biologist Dirk Lewis says the peak was late June while the river waters were highest.
“Not many mosquitoes have been produced since then. As the water comes down there are no new areas for them. The eggs come out of new flooded areas. So there aren’t any more mosquitoes, the ones that are out now, they’re dying.”
Lewis says this year was definitely a worse than usual one for the little pests, but says things should be pretty good the rest of the summer if we see some hot dry weather to kill off the ones we have now.
