A vector is a carrier of disease from one host to another. Examples would be mosquitoes, flies, roaches, fleas, ticks, lice, and rodents. The most common vectors we deal with are mosquitoes and rodents.
City of San Marcos Environmental Health offers assistance to the public in dealing with these pests through information, education, treatment strategies, and chemical applications.
If you wish to obtain further information on vector control, please go to the Texas Department of State Health Services website. Click on to Programs/Services and then go to the Zoonosis Control Division. If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to call City of San Marcos Environmental Health at 512-393-8440.
