The Antelope Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District provides services to help reduce the impact of mosquitoes in our community.
Mosquito control in a community is crucial to public health because mosquitoes are a vector. A vector is an organism (mostly insects) that can carry and transmit a disease-causing pathogen from one animal/plant to another or cause direct harm and injury to humans or animals. Examples of vectors: mosquitoes, fleas, ticks, mites, lice, flies, rats, eye gnats, spiders, scorpions, rattlesnakes.
Our District currently handles issues pertaining to mosquito reduction and control for public health purposes.
