Legislative Day

MVCAC is the leading voice for mosquito and vector control in the California. We work to educate policymakers and stakeholders about Best Management Practices for mosquito and vector-borne disease prevention as well as secure support for advancements in surveillance, laboratory techniques, and vector control methods. This year, MVCAC members will be meeting with legislators to discuss key issues including:

  • The spread of invasive Aedes mosquitoes throughout the state is putting an enormous strain on mosquito control districts and creating serious public health concerns
  • No new tools have been approved in our state to assist mosquito control districts in fighting the spread of invasive mosquitoes for 10 years
  • CalSurv, the statewide surveillance database housed at UC Davis, continues to be an essential tool in fighting vector-borne diseases
