Invasive Mosquito - Aedes aegypti 

Aedes aegypti is capable of transmitting serious viruses

A mosquito species capable of transmitting viruses such as chikungunya, dengue, yellow fever, and Zika has been detected in the Coachella Valley. While there are no reports of local mosquito transmission of these viruses at this time, the District is working proactively to reduce the chances of future local transmission. In addition to our routine surveillance program, the District is actively monitoring for invasive Aedes mosquito species and carrying out enhanced surveillance and control activities as per the District Invasive Mosquito Species Response Plan in an effort to eliminate them before the species becomes established here.
