WNV is the most common mosquito-borne disease in the AV and can affect both people and animals.

The Antelope Valley Mosquito & Vector Control District has been protecting the health and well-being of residents and visitors of  the Antelope Valley since 1958.  The AVMVCD is a Public Health agency under the California Health and Safety Code  (Division 3, Chapter 1).

This site is designed to give you an overview of mosquito-borne diseases, other vector-related issues, and ways to stay safe.  We hope the information on the following pages can answer most of your questions or direct you to other sites with more detailed information.  If you have other questions or need our services, please feel free to contact us.

Follow the 3-D's of mosquito control:
  • Drain & dump all standing water.

  • Dusk & dawn is when mosquitoes are most active.

  • Defend yourself - use insect repellents, window screens, long pants & shirts.
