Northwest Nevada Mosquito Management Services
Mosquitoes are more than a nuisance – they endanger humans, pets, and wildlife by spreading infectious diseases. At VDCI (Vector Disease Control International), our mission is to protect public health through science-based mosquito management, because everyone deserves peace of mind while enjoying the outdoors.
Our team of entomologists, biologists, environmental health, and mosquito control specialists are committed to protecting public health in communities throughout Humbolt County and Northwest Nevada by managing nuisance and disease-carrying mosquitoes while also preserving our environment.

Citizens, Do Your Part to Fight the Bite. Remember the 4Ds.
One of the reasons mosquitoes so often plague our outdoor activities is because they are highly efficient at reproducing. Anywhere water collects—from a stagnant pond to a tiny puddle in the sidewalk—can become an active breeding ground for mosquitoes. Therefore, community members play a vital role in the elimination of standing water, as well as the protection of themselves and their families from vector-borne pathogens.
The best way to protect yourself when spending time outdoors is remembering the 4Ds:
Defend: Consistently wear and reapply an EPA-approved repellent when outdoors.
Dress: Wear closed-toe shoes, light colors, and long sleeves and pants to keep your skin protected.
Drain: Mosquitoes require standing water to reproduce.
Dusk & Dawn: Limit spending time outdoors when mosquitoes are most active.
