Mosquitoes and Diseases
Our mission at CCMCD is to efficiently manage the risks from vectors and vector-borne diseases to protect public health and quality of life in Clark County.
The locally established species of mosquitoes in Clark County are considered a nuisance, meaning that they bite humans and animals. Some of these species can vector diseases. Please note, there have been zero known positive cases of locally acquired mosquito-borne zoonotic disease transmission to humans in Clark County. Some mosquito species leave humans alone altogether, preferring to feed on birds, large mammals, snakes, or even frogs.
