We are a California government public health service agency formed under the authority of the California State Health and Safety Code. The Fresno Mosquito and Vector Control District is a property-tax supported special district created in 1942 to control mosquitoes in a part of the City of Fresno and in Fresno County. The District also includes the City of Kerman, the communities of Biola, Calwa, Malaga and Easton. The mission of the District is to suppress populations of mosquitoes and other vectors of human disease-carrying potential, and reducing annoyance levels below generally acceptable thresholds.
