The city of Santa Clarita will host a public information session on the invasive Aedes mosquitoes in the City Hall Council Chambers on Monday, October 23, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Public Information Officer Levy Sun and Wesley Colling from the Greater Los Angeles County Vector Control will be sharing how people can protect themselves and their families from these disease-transmitting insects.
Residents, businesses, property management companies and landscapers are encouraged to attend this meeting.
Aedes mosquitoes possess the ability to transmit Zika, chikungunya, dengue fever and yellow fever. While these diseases have not been transmitted locally, the invasive Aedes mosquitoes have been confirmed in Santa Clarita.
Unlike other mosquito species, Aedes mosquitoes bite during the day, live in cities and thrive outside and indoors.
City Hall is located at 23920 Valencia Boulevard, Valencia 91355.
For additional information regarding the session, contact Levy Sun at 562-325-3271.
