Document Description
Integrated Vector Management Practices guide the Orange County Vector Control District's comprehensive vector control programs to meet human, domestic animal, and wildlife needs for protection from nuisance and disease that may be spread by vector insects and animals. OCVCD's Integrated Vector Management Practices aim to control the production of mosquitoes, filth flies and black flies, red imported fire ants (RIFA), and rats through the following activities: 1) Surveillance for vectors, vector habitats, and associated pathogens/diseases; this includes field and laboratory analysis of vectors in order to evaluate populations and emerging disease threats; 2) Source Reduction to limit breeding by vectors; this includes management of vegetation, land, and water with appropriate landowners to minimize vector production; 3) Public Education efforts targeted toward the public and private landowners in ways to facilitate source reduction and minimize disease-carrying vectors; 4) Distribution of mosquito fish (Gambusia affinis), a Biological Control measure used to reduce mosquito production in isolated aquatic features, such as neglected residential swimming pools, and 5) Chemical Control using non-persistent pesticides to minimize vector populations and reduce the threat of potential vector-borne disease transmission to humans.
