Eliminate Standing Water to Prevent Mosquitoes

The Asian tiger and yellow fever mosquitoes have found their way to the area through global travel and trade. These mosquitoes adapt well to urban environments and once introduced, can thrive in our neighborhoods. Mosquitoes only need ¼ inch of water to breed and they can develop into adults in a container as small as a bottle cap. Mosquitoes are the world’s deadliest animals, and warm weather enables them to replicate faster. More mosquitoes mean higher likelihood for disease transmission. To protect yourself and your community, tip all containers containing water, and toss out containers that you no longer need (and are simply taking up space). For larger containers or areas found with mosquito breeding, call Vector Control to help at (714) 971-2421, or fill out a service request online  at ocvector.org.
