TULARE COUNTY, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) — Residents who live in part of California’s Central Valley say they are hoping a slight increase in their property taxes will mean getting a break from an invasive species of mosquito.
According to the Delta Mosquito Vector Control District, “Aedes aegypti” is an invasive species of mosquito that have made its way into many counties in California. They are aggressive, day-biters found both indoors and outdoors, and they especially like to feed on ankles, wrists, and elbows.
