Contact the District to report 'green' inoperable swimming pools or non-functional ponds & fountains. These can breed thousands of mosquitoes each week.
WNV is primarily transmitted bird to bird by mosquitoes. Many species of birds can get WNV and in some, it is nearly always fatal. The presence of dead birds in the neighborhood is often the first indication of WNV activity.
Help us monitor and control WNV - Report ALL DEAD BIRDS to www.westnile.ca.gov or (877) 968-2473. Not all birds can be collected and tested. These reports help us direct our control efforts and keep you safe.
