California Mosquito Awareness Week #MosquitoWeek
April 21 - April 27, 2019
Sharks get a whole week of programming, but why don't mosquitoes?
Mosquitoes lay their eggs in containers that hold stagnant water. This means every yard and patio in your neighborhood can turn into a mosquito metropolis!
There's a new mosquito threat in town
More people know about the Aedes mosquitoes than ever before. The black-and-white striped mosquitoes that can spread Zika and dengue fever are biting people aggressively during the day.
We need you to eliminate stagnant water weekly and wear insect repellent.
But tip 'n tossing stagnant water may not be on most people's minds in Los Angeles County. So how do we raise awareness with students and busy adults?
Coming soon..."Don't Bring Back the Aedes"
