The San Gabriel Valley Mosquito & Vector Control District is committed to providing superior vector control services to the residents of our district.
The District was founded in 1989 to protect residents from mosquito-borne disease through public education, surveillance, and control of mosquitoes.
As the District evolved, additional programs were added. In 1997, the Board of Trustees approved a full vector surveillance and control program. This expanded our services to include the control of Africanized honey bees, black flies, midges and rats.
Surveillance for vector-borne diseases include St. Louis encephalitis, Western equine encephalomyalitis, West Nile virus, plague, murine typhus, hantavirus, arenavirus, and Lyme disease.
District services are provided through an Integrated Pest Management program which incorporates significant measures aimed at protecting the environment. The District promotes cooperation and communication with property owners, residents, social and political groups, and other governmental agencies to aid in those efforts. A strong commitment to public education is critical to achieving these goals.
