History
California’s Mosquito Abatement Districts Act (AB 1590) was enacted in 1915. This legislation was a result of the threat mosquitoes posed to California’s economic development and health and well-being of its citizens. A century later, the threat is just as great, and efforts to combat mosquitoes and other vectors are even more critical to protect more than 38 million Californians. Learn more »
