While some in the province are praying for the rains, the dry conditions have helped others, including those battling mosquitoes.
Parks and Facilities Manager, Rod March shares that right now they are monitoring areas and currently have larvae control in place.
"We're not seeing any numbers really because it's so dry out there. Basically, we're in good shape and we're on top of it as of right now."
And while the conditions are keeping the mosquitoes down, it might be contributing to an increase of another insect known for biting people and their pets.
"We'll get an increase in tick populations but we only deal with the American dog tick here which does not carry Lyme disease so it's not a big deal."
Right now, the City of Estevan is not asking residents to conserve water however, it is not far from mind for March.
"Water conservation is always a concern for everyone but at this point in time, we want to get the grass healthy so we can reduce the amount of chemicals and herbicides that we need to use to combat the weeds."
"That's what we do, we aerate, fertilize and irrigate type one properties to cut down on chemicals."
