Aedes aegypti, also called the yellow fever mosquito, has been reported in areas of Menlo Park. Although this mosquito is not common or widespread, it has the potential to become a serious threat to human health if allowed to become established in San Mateo County.
This mosquito species is not native to our county, and has the potential to transmit diseases such as Zika, chikungunya, yellow fever and dengue. At this time these diseases are not present in San Mateo County, but to reduce future health risks it is important to prevent invasive mosquito populations from increasing.
You can help keep our community free of invasive Aedes mosquitoes by following a few simple guidelines:
Residents who believe they have encountered Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, or who experience mosquito bites during the day, should contact San Mateo County Mosquito and Vector Control District.
San Mateo County Mosquito and Vector Control District is also available to assist residents with removing large numbers of unwanted containers from their property, identifying areas where mosquitoes may breed, locating the source of any existing mosquito problem, and treating standing water for mosquito larvae.
San Mateo County Mosquito and Vector Control District uses an integrated pest management strategy to safeguard the health and comfort of the residents of San Mateo County. The District's service area includes the entirety of San Mateo County.
