The Vector Control Program

The San Diego County Vector Control Program (VCP) is a countywide program that monitors vectors and the diseases that they carry. A "vector" is an insect or other animal capable of transmitting the causative agent of human disease. Some examples of vectors in San Diego County are mosquitoesticks and rats.

The VCP Protects public health by surveying for diseases carried by vectors, reducing people's exposure to vectors and human diseases, responding to public requests for vector inspections, and educating the public about mosquitoes and other vectors to help residents protect themselves from the diseases vectors can carry.

To request a rat or mosquito inspection or to report a green pool, dead bird, or other vector related issue, please call, email, or use one of our other reporting options. 

The County of San Diego Vector Control Program office is located in the County Operations Complex in Kearny Mesa.
