The third most populous city in Alberta, Red Deer is home to approximately 100,800 individuals. Located on the Red Deer River, the city is a hub for oil and agriculture distribution and houses several parks and outdoor recreation facilities. In addition, the Red Deer Regional Airport and Air Canada Express maintain locations within the city. Given all the local attractions, the municipality enjoys a decent flow of tourism year round. Coupled with the town’s substantial population and the humid, varied climate, the flow of people in and out of Red Deer makes the city an ideal breeding ground for pests like mosquitoes, flies, ants, weevils, and several species of beetles and moths that feed on foliage.
Summers in Red Deer span from late May to mid-September and bring average temperatures of 18°C. The relatively high temperatures paired with fluctuating levels of humidity creates the ideal environment for pests like mosquitoes, flies, and ants to breed. Mosquitoes and flies are of special concern to city officials as they spread disease and compromise the overall well-being of Red Deer residents. Winter temperatures extend from late November to early March and rarely exceed 0°C. Ants, beetles, and moths are driven into homes and other centrally heated buildings during these cooler months. Beetles and moths often damage commodities, and ants can potentially contaminate stores of human food.
