Yellow fever mosquitoes found in Menlo Park

 

Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, which can transmit several diseases, including yellow fever, were found in Menlo Park on Jan. 27, according to the San Mateo County Mosquito and Vector Control District.

The district said it will continue door-to-door inspections of residential properties for standing water, which serves as a breeding ground for mosquitoes.

Anyone bitten by a mosquito during the day should report it to the district by calling 344-8592 or via its website.
