FIGHT THE BITE GETS A NEW LOOK!

Sac-Yolo Mosquito Control Debut’s a New Website

Elk Grove, Calif. — The Sacramento-Yolo Mosquito and Vector Control District is proud to showcase its new website! FIGHTtheBITE.net features a complete new look while still providing Sacramento and Yolo county residents the most current and detailed information on mosquitoes and West Nile virus in our area. “We’re very pleased with the new site and are happy to share it with the public,” said David Brown District Manager.

The website features an “In the Spotlight” section which highlights new and current information being promoted by the District. The home page also includes mini billboards with timely and relevant information on West Nile virus activity, spraying updates, how to report a dead bird and information on other District programs. A video on the home page highlights the work of the District and the new menus feature different tabs including services available to all residents, an education section, complete descriptions of all District programs, a media section with news releases and news coverage and a Frequently Asked Question section related to West Nile virus. ”The site reflects our new image and the work we do,” said Brown. ”It is very lively, includes many pictures and we encourage the public to visit us often to stay informed.”

The new website allows residents to request various services on-line, report neglected swimming pools, request a presentation and subscribe to mailing lists to receive email notifications for mosquito treatments by zip code.

The Sacramento-Yolo Mosquito and Vector Control District provides year round mosquito and vector control services. Our goal is to keep the public healthy by preventing the transmission of diseases and improving the quality of life for residents of Sacramento and Yolo counties.
