SACRAMENTO, Calif. — It’s Mosquito and West Nile Virus Awareness Week in California.
As the weather gets warmer, the Sacramento-Yolo Mosquito and Vector Control District is urging families to do their part to stop mosquitoes from multiplying.
Experts said we need to be extra vigilant for the next six months.
More mosquitoes are out, and they aren’t just a nuisance — they carry diseases like West Nile virus.
It’s important to do weekly checks of our homes, draining any standing water that may produce mosquitoes outside.
