No, we are an independent special district governed by an eleven member Board of Trustees. Each of the seven cities in San Joaquin County appoint one trustee and the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors appoints four trustees to represent the unincorporated areas of the county. Mosquito and vector control is an integral part of public health. The District's program provides comprehensive vector surveillance and control services to protect the public's health by reducing the transmission of diseases and maintaining quality of life.
San Joaquin County Mosquito & Vector Control District is committed to help you and your family from mosquito bites that can spread West Nile virus. West Nile virus (WNV) is a potentially serious mosquito-borne disease commonly found in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. It was first detected in the U.S. in 1999 in New York. Since then it has rapidly moved westward and has now been found in all of the continental United States. Most often, WNV is spread by the bite of an infected mosquito. Mosquitoes are carriers ("vectors") that become infected when they feed on infected birds.
