What does Vector Control do?
Metro Health provides pest control services on public property for mosquitoes to protect the residents of and visitors to San Antonio from diseases that these organisms can spread. Vector Control uses source reduction techniques and pesticides as necessary to control mosquitoes on public property by eliminating the breeding source, applying pesticides to stagnant water. “Fogging” for adult mosquitoes is carried out occasionally only on an as-needed basis.
Routine service requests may be made by calling 3-1-1.
To report emergency problems dealing with bee attacks after business hours, on weekends or holidays, call the San Antonio Fire Department by dialing 911. The Vector Control Program does not treat private property for insect or rodent problems.
