Wild Species-Bugs

/ 97.3 The Eagle
             Welcome to the first day of summer! But you may want to stock up on bug spray to enjoy the great outdoors. The latest report on wild species in Canada shows we are being pestered by 160 different species of blackflies and 80 different species of mosquitoes — and no blackflies or mosquitoes are on the latest list of species at risk. The report lists 122 species which are extinct or possibly extinct in Canada, including the black footed ferret and the frosted elfin butterfly.
