Los Angeles County West Vector & Vector-Borne Disease Control District

Public Education Program

Complementing our other services, the Public Education Program works to inform residents about the life cycle of mosquitoes and bees, protection from mosquito and tick borne diseases, safety around bee hives and swarms,  property owner's responsibilities, and the functions of the District. 

This is accomplished through the use of informational brochures, fact sheets, city newsletters, public speaking engagements, informational booths at local events, public service announcements and our  District web site.


 The Public Education Department has also implemented an educational program for public elementary schools. Students are given the opportunity to learn hands on about mosquitoes, bees, and ticks through the use of live and preserved insect displays, videos, and insect related handouts. School presentations are customized to match the age of the students as well as the objectives of the teacher.


Thousands of pamphlets and videos have been distributed regarding public health issues caused by mosquitoes, Africanized honeybees, ticks and other vectors. The District has been the lead agency in training and coordinating fire departments, police departments, and 911 systems throughout the District.
