Antelope Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District

Protecting Public Health in the Antelope Valley since 1958

We need YOUR help to fight a new mosquito before it spreads any further! 

We have found the invasive Yellow Fever mosquito (Aedes aegypti ) in Lancaster.  Please make sure to call our office, if you are getting bit by mosquitoes during the day, so we can check your yard and set traps to reduce the risk of diseases like Zika, Dengue and Yellow Fever.
