The County of San Luis Obispo currently does not provide mosquito surveillance or abatement services.
In an effort to begin assessing native and invasive mosquito populations in our area, Environmental Health Services contracted with the Mosquito and Vector Management District of Santa Barbara and the North Salinas Valley Mosquito Abatement District to perform seasonal mosquito surveillance throughout the county from August of 2016 through June 2020, when this effort concluded due to the lack of funding. The seasonal surveillance resumed in the summer of 2021 when funding was restored.
MosquitoSurveillanceView is a map viewer that provides seasonal mosquito trapping locations and results from mosquito surveillance performed in San Luis Obispo County by contracted specialists for Environmental Health Services. Currently, the county does not have a program in place for mosquito abatement services.
