Prevention Information

Help us protect you and the entire community from vectors and vector-borne disease!

The Placer Mosquito and Vector Control District relies on people in the community who are aware of the threat from vectors and vector-borne diseases. An educated and empowered public is one of our most effective tools in preventing illness spread by mosquitoes and other vectors.

Please take the time to read about the different vectors in Placer County and how you can prevent them from developing in your community. If you become aware of any mosquito or vector issues in your neighborhood, please take the next step and report it to our office, and take precautions to prevent bites from mosquitoes and other vectors if you are in an area where these vectors are present.

It is through partnerships with our residents who share an interest in protecting the health of our community that we can be most effective in achieving our goal of reducing the burden of vectors and vector-transmitted diseases.
