Deschutes County does not have a vector control program, this page is informational only.
A "vector" is any organism capable of transmitting disease. Some examples are fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, and rodents. Vectors are able to spread disease to humans by biting, burrowing into skin, or contaminating living spaces. If you are interested in inspection or extermination for your home, contact firms listed under "Pest Control" in your local telephone book business listings or on the internet.
In parts of South Deschutes County, 4 Rivers Vector Control District performs vector control.
