The Sacramento-Yolo Mosquito and Vector Control District announced that it has detected the invasive mosquito Aedes aegypti in Yolo County.

According to Luz Marie Robles, public information officer for the district, the adult female mosquito was found in a trap near East and Main street in Winters.

This is the first discovery of invasive mosquitoes for the 2020 season within District boundaries and the first detection ever in Yolo County, Robles reported.

“As part of our ongoing surveillance program, we have been setting traps looking for invasive mosquitoes,” said Gary Goodman, district manager. “Finding this mosquito for the first time likely means it could possibly be established anywhere. We will continue to work diligently to look for and identify locations where these mosquitoes can be breeding.”
