Public Information and Education

The primary purpose of the Orange County Mosquito and Vector Control District’s operations is to promote public health by preventing and controlling the spread of vector-borne diseases within Orange County.

Our awareness, outreach and education programs educate and inform the public about mosquito and rodent control and prevention methods. The District utilizes media and video, community events and presentations to educate residents in Orange County. In addition, the District educates the young residents of Orange County through a classroom program and exhibit at the Discovery Cube.
