The San Mateo County Mosquito & Vector Control District (SMCMVCD) handles mosquito control for all of San Mateo County, including the 20 independent cities plus all unincorporated County areas. It is an independent special district, which is a type of local government entity that delivers specific services to citizens within its boundaries (similar to the Menlo Park Fire Control District). The District’s mission is, “To safeguard the health and comfort of the citizens of San Mateo County through a planned program to monitor and reduce mosquitoes and other vectors." The District is governed by a Board of Trustees consisting of one resident from each city. The District can be reached at 650-344-8592 or online at www.smcmvcd.org.
