Another Mosquito Impostor: the Plume Moth

As invasive Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes increase their range in California, the District is always on the lookout for these species in San Mateo County. We always appreciate residents’ help in watching for these invasive mosquitoes, but so far in 2016 (fortunately!) none have been found.
