An invasive mosquito that can spread several diseases has been found in Oroville.
The non-native species, known as the Yellow Fever Mosquito, can transmit viruses such as Zika, Dengue, and Yellow Fever as the name suggests.
Mosquitos that are native to the area don’t spread those diseases, county officials say.
There is now a rush to eradicate the invasive species and contain it to the area of Oroville Dam Boulevard and Feather River Boulevard.
