VCT1503: San Bernardino County West Nile Virus Aerial Surveillance Collaboration

West Nile virus is affecting people throughout our country, causing serious illness or death. The San Bernardino County Mosquito and Vector Control Program collaborated with the Sheriff's Department Aviation Division to mitigate mosquito-breeding hazards in previously unknown locations by identifying unmaintained (green) pools from the air. Attendees will learn how, with little to no cost, they can develop and implement a collaborative program to survey and abate mosquito-breeding sources and minimize the risk of West Nile Virus and other mosquito-transmitted diseases.
