Hall: Help! Mosquitoes.

Concerned with protecting the environment and California’s outdoor spaces. Neighbors kept complaining about new ankle-biting mosquitoes but didn’t seem to be getting good information. Meetings with Vector Control Districts in OC and LA gave more answers. New Aedes aegypti showing up where you don’t expect and they bite during the day. Vector Control only does part of the job. You can do the rest.
