Public Health Department (PHD)



Vector Surveillance Program


The Vector Surveillance Program protects the public from exposure to vector-borne diseases, such as lyme disease, hantavirus, and plague and is designed to provide a minimum level of surveillance and complaint response to protect public health from animals, which can cause disease in the human population such as ticks, rodents, mosquitoes, fleas, and africanized honeybees. In a coordinated effort with other health officials and Mosquito and Vector Management District, Environmental Health Services keeps the public informed of current and emerging threats to public health.

MVMDThe Mosquito and Vector Management District is a local service district primarily focused on protecting the health and well being of area residents from the impacts of disease and nuisance vectors. Services provided by the District are funded primarily by property-based assessments and vary by assessment zones. More detailed information is available on the District's website "link" above.
