The Mosquito and Vector Control Association of California reminds everyone that the busy mosquito season has begun, which brings the serious threat that mosquitoes and other vectors pose to the health of our communities.

Mosquitoes and warm weather go hand-in-hand. This is especially true with the warm winter and spring we experienced this year. As temperatures warm, the threat of West Nile virus increases.
