In conjunction with Mosquito Awareness Week, April 19-23, we’re hosting and sharing special district videos about what we do, who we are and our history of mosquito control in Placer County.

Although the Placer Mosquito and Vector Control District is one of the newest districts in the Sacramento region, Placer County has a rich history in mosquito control, having one of the first organized mosquito control campaigns in the state.

Join us in participating in the below events!
