If you've been bit by aggressive black-and-white striped mosquitoes, you probably know Ada Eez (Aedes, get it?). This nefarious mosquito often bugs residents of the San Gabriel Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District and is the world’s most famous mosquito.

Ada Eez is an educational tool used to teach students about invasive Aedes mosquitoes that have adapted to our yards and patios, mostly thanks to human behavior.

Did you know that Ada has a daughter now?

That’s right, the invasive Aedes mosquitoes invaded San Gabriel Valley, laid mosquito eggs that hatched due to stagnant water, and, now, we have Ada Eez, The Next Generation

The daughter Ada Eez is a reminder to everyone of how this type of mosquito rapidly takes over homes and can establish new generations of Aedes mosquitoes in a matter of weeks.

So if you’ve seen enough of Momma Ada, prepare yourselves for the voyages of Ada Eez and fellow Aedes mosquitoes.
