- Aedes Aegypti Mosquitoes Detected in Imperial County
The Imperial County Public Health Department announced today that it has detected Aedes aegypti mosquitoes in Imperial County. The first field detection was confirmed this month in the southern part of the County - along the border. This particular type of mosquito could cause local transmission of exotic mosquito-borne viral infections. The Department is continuing its active surveillance and will aggressively treat problem areas should they occur.
