Good evening, San Gabriel

A friendly reminder - this week is California Mosquito Week. Mosquitoes can transmit viruses and parasites, with West Nile virus serving as the biggest mosquito threat to people living in Los Angeles County. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in stagnant water, so we encourage you to eliminate any stagnant water around your house, including planters and pools. Click here to learn more about what you can do to mitigate the threat.
