Who We Are

Jackson County Vector Control District is an Oregon Special District formed by public vote in 1968.  We conduct mosquito and tick surveillance, disease testing, mosquito control, and public education/outreach as part of an Integrated Mosquito Management (IMM) program to protect Jackson County residents from vector-borne diseases.  We are governed by a Board of Trustees whose members are appointed by the Jackson County Board of Commissioners.

How Do I?

From submitting a mosquito service request to tick identification, we're here to assist residents of Jackson County.
