With nearly 400 students and families enjoying fun, interactive exhibits, learning about mosquitoes, and feasting on delicious food, we couldn’t be happier with our April 19th event.
Compton Creek Mosquito Abatement District Home
Murine Typhus is a disease transmitted by arthropods such as fleas, ticks, and lice. However, in urban areas, like Compton, it is primarily transmitted by fleas.
An invasive Aedes aegypti mosquito was discovered here in Compton in mid-September. Staff at the Compton Creek Mosquito Abatement District are taking the appropriate steps to inform the public how they can best protect themselves – and their community – from this threat.
