Invasive Aedes surveillance in summer 2020

The District conducts intensive surveillance for invasive Aedes mosquitoes during the summer months. The surveillance program mainly targets two container-breeding species, Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus, which have been increasing their range within California over the last several years. This summer, Ae. aegypti and Ae. albopictus were detected for the first time in Shasta County. The presence of these mosquitoes is highly undesirable because they are aggressive human biters and also transmit diseases including dengue, chikungunya, yellow fever and Zika.
