Chiloquin Vector Control District

Providing Public Health Vector Control for the citizens of Chiloquin since 1969

 

Protecting Public Health through integrated Pest management

The Chiloquin Vector Control District is a Vector Control District, formed under ORS 198 and operating under ORS 452.  Originally established as an in-house program, CVCD owned equipment and had employees conducting mosquito abatement.  With the short and extensive mosquito season and long, cold winters, it was decided that having an in-house program ws not effecient or effective; more money was paid for overhead than mosquito abatement.  In 2012, the CVCD made a choice to get rid of all equipment and outsource mosquito abatement services.  More money is now spent on mosquito abatement than overhead and non-abatement expenses.  CVCD residents receive significantly more mosquito abatement services than ever before, for less money.
