Mosquitoes and West Nile Virus Threat

Calfornia is experiencing cases of West Nile virus infections and the threat can easily spread by birds that carry the virus. Due to our monsoon weather, you are cautioned to watch for standing water that can breed mosquitoes and to protect your family and pets from mosquito bites.

If you have been recently bitten by a mosquito and experience any flu-like symptoms, it is recommended to consult with your doctor.

While the risk for West Nile, Zika, and malaria are currently low, it is advised to be proactive in protecting yourself, your family, and your pets from bites. Dead birds in the area are an indication of local disease carrying mosquito breeding grounds. Be especially watchful of detention basins in your neighborhood.
