Increase in mosquito activity may be attributable to this year’s weather pattern

UBC Facilities is aware that there is currently an increase in mosquito activity due to this summer’s weather pattern. Although, some may find mosquitos pesky because of their biting habit, Facilities does not manage the population of this insect.

Mosquitos do not typically cross an action threshold frequently enough to pose a serious risk to the community and safety to our buildings or infrastructure. These insects are seasonal and populations should reduce greatly in 6-8 weeks.
