The Greater Los Angeles County Vector Control District is a great resource in the fight against diseases carrying mosquitoes.

  1. Eliminate any standing water in and outside your property.
    Mosquitoes grow in dirty, standing water. Our District routinely checks public spaces throughout our service area but we need your help in removing any standing water from your property. Search for and remove all water from vases, buckets, potted plant saucers, open rain barrels, etc. to break the mosquito life cycle.
  2. Wear insect repellent.
    If adult mosquitoes are active, wear insect repellent to prevent mosquito bites and mosquito-transmitted diseases. Learn which ingredients are recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
  3. Share with Your Community.
    Stay up-to-date on the best ways to get rid of mosquitoes and disease activity in your area. Follow Vector Control on social media or sign up for their newsletter, www.glacvcd.org.
