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