Help us keep Coachella Valley safe from mosquitoes and the diseases they can carry!

      For Parents:

      Here in the desert, mosquitoes look for man-made water sources to lay their eggs. Just a bottle cap of water is all they need. Mosquito bites are annoying and sometimes, they carry diseases. To prevent mosquitoes and the diseases they can carry, dump, refresh, or cover anything that can hold water. Wipe water-holding containers like pet dishes weekly.

      This informational material packet will help you make the right decisions in protecting your family from mosquitoes. Please take some time to review these materials and participate in the Vector Inspector Checklist activity with your child.

      You are the solution to stop mosquitoes. We want to make Coachella Valley a safe place to live and play as we fight the bite. Together.
