Mosquitoes

Mosquito populations are a concern during the summer months, especially after periods of heavy rainfall. Each hatch of mosquitoes will generally last for approximately three weeks. The numbers will start to drop off after that period unless another period of a heavy rainfall occurs. If conditions are dry, the number of mosquitoes will stay reasonably low.

Management

Strathcona County does not currently control mosquitoes on any County land. The County does permit the City of Edmonton to treat some areas of County land outside of Sherwood Park as part of the city’s mosquito control program. For more information on the City of Edmonton mosquito control program, including a map showing the boundaries of the program, please visit  the City of Edmonton website.
