Text about vector protection in San Gabriel Valley with a logo.


Providing the highest level of protection from vectors and vector-borne diseases in San Gabriel Valley by suppressing vector populations to reduce outbreaks of human diseases and public nuisances; and increasing the quality of life for the residents of the District.


We employ integrated vector management (IVM) techniques, which include public education and outreach; surveillance; biological control; physical control and/or habitat modification; chemical control; research; partnering with other agencies; legal action where necessary; enforcement of the California Health and Safety Code; and as governed by federal and state law.
