Mosquito Information

Mosquitoes can transmit diseases to people and animals and can mosquitohave a serious impact on our health and comfort.  All mosquitoes must have water to complete their life cycle.  Stagnant water left from rain, irrigation, or other sources can produce hundreds of thousands of mosquitoes if the larva is allowed to stand as little as three days.  Everyone is responsible for eliminating and preventing mosquito breeding on their property.


Maricopa County Vector Control is the agency responsible for the abatement of mosquitoes, including fogging areas with heavy concentrations of mosquitoes.  In addition, Avondale Code Enforcement will respond to complaints of stagnant water on private property that may be breeding mosquitoes.


For more information on mosquitos, West Nile virus, mosquito fogging, and prevention, please visit the Maricopa County Vector Control website.

To report mosquitos in your area, you can use the Maricopa County Vector Control online complaint form or
call (602) 506-6616.
