Containers or debris that hold even small amounts of water provide good sites for mosquitoes to reproduce in very large numbers. Rid your property of as many of these items as possible and encourage your neighbors to do the same. Clean gutters. Repair leaky outdoor faucets and irrigation systems. Clean and add fresh water to bird baths, pet bowls and flower pot saucers at least twice weekly. Please visit our Vector Control for more information on controlling mosquito populations.
Our Environmental Health division inspects, and issues permits for, restaurants, temporary food vendors (such as those as festivals), tattoo artists and body piercers, schools and child care centers, adult care facilities, public pools (and private pools on properties without county water), as well as septic and well systems. For more information on these wide ranging programs, please visit Permits and Rules.
