The residential neighborhood of south Placer County east of Interstate 80 and north of Linden Ave. is scheduled for ground-based adult mosquito treatment tomorrow morning, Friday, September 6, from 4-5:30 a.m.
We detected an invasive (non-native) species, Aedes aegypti, commonly known as the yellow fever mosquito, on Wednesday, August 28 in this neighborhood. We are partnering with the Sacramento-Yolo Mosquito and Vector Control District on this ground-based treatment because the mosquito was trapped near the county border.
WHAT: Aedes aegypti
The Aedes aegypti mosquito has been found in several Central Valley and southern California counties, including recent initial detections in San Joaquin and Stanislaus counties. The mosquito is small and dark with a white violin-shaped marking on its body. Aedes aegypti can transmit several viruses, including Zika, dengue, chikungunya and yellow fever. These viruses, however, have not been found circulating in California.
