Mosquito season has begun and so has the City of Regina's anti-mosquito campaign.

City crews have started using Vectobac in pools of standing water to kill the larvae of the pesky bugs. 

For the start of the 2016 mosquito season, the city's pest control group is expecting mosquito numbers to start lower than normal due to the low spring melt.  

However, that can change quickly with the coming of spring and summer storms.

The city uses 12 "traps" to obtain mosquito population counts. It will start monitoring them on May 1 and make the first results public on May 12.
