Mosquitoes in Santa Ana

Category: Notification

The Orange County Mosquito and Vector Control District (OCMVCD) is reporting an elevated level of invasive Aedes mosquitoes and an increased risk of mosquito-borne disease in areas of Santa Ana.

 

These non-native and aggressive day-biting mosquitoes are black and white and lay their eggs along the waterline of containers as small as a bottle cap. The mosquitoes known as Aedes aegypti (yellow fever mosquito), Aedes albopictus (Asian tiger mosquito), and Aedes notoscriptus (Australian backyard mosquito) are capable of transmitting debilitating viruses including dengue, chikungunya, yellow fever, and Zika.

 

Vector Control officials are urging residents to take the necessary precautions to reduce mosquito breeding: "Mosquito control is a shared responsibility. Every resident must redouble their efforts to eliminate ALL standing water from their property, including standing water found indoors. Residents must take responsibility for their own yards."

 

Please visit the OCVector.org website to learn more about mosquitoes and how to eliminate them from your property.
