Our Mission

Our mission is to support public health through the suppression of vector populations to reduce outbreaks of human diseases and public nuisances and increase the quality of life for the residents of the District.

To accomplish our mission we will employ integrated vector management techniques which include public education and outreach, surveillance, biological control, physical control and/or habitat modification, chemical control, research, partnering with other agencies and legal action where necessary and as governed by federal and state law. 

The California Health and Safety Code Section 2002 defines a vector as any animal capable of transmitting the causative agent of human disease or capable of producing discomfert or injury.
