Mosquitoes are one of the deadliest creatures on earth; they have the potential to spread many different viruses like West Nile, dengue, chikungunya, and even Zika. There are over 3000 different species of mosquitoes in the world; 26 of these species are found in the County, some of which are potential spreaders of these viruses (called “vectors”). The Vector Control Program monitors, tests, and controls mosquitoes and provides education and outreach.
