Visitors to Florida’s tourism-focused tourist destination of Tampa Bay flocked to attractions, attractions, and other attractions Tuesday, and they did not have to wait long to catch a mosquito.
The city’s main attractions, including the Tampa Bay Times Square, The World Famous Hotel & Casino, and the World Trade Center were jammed full of visitors who crowded the water at the Tampa International Airport and its terminal, said Jennifer Meehan, a spokeswoman for the city of Tampa.
The city reported 919 mosquito-related incidents from Tuesday through Friday, compared with 718 mosquito-control incidents from the same period last year.
The numbers were lower than the 917 mosquito-reported in the same time period last September, but still higher than the 821 mosquito-caused in September.
Meehan said the city expects to have an update on mosquito control on the city’s website by the end of the week.
She said the number of mosquitoes reported during the week jumped from 716 to 1,957, and that the number reported at the airport was a record 7,988.
