Insects & Vector

The Vector Control Program aims to minimize the risk of transmission of disease from organisms such as insects.  A vector is any organism that transmits a pathogen.  Residential Services Sanitarians work diligently to minimize the risk of disease transmission.  When a disease is identified, Sanitarians respond with educational material and, when applicable, the application of pesticide.  Educational workshops are also offered on insects of public health significance.
