Video: Mosquito Rap Song

The Greater Los Angeles County Vector Control District has created an informative video to teach residents on ways to prevent mosquitoes from spreading eggs and disease.

Instead of doing a boring step by step, facts only video, GLACVCD pumped it up a notch by making it a rap video complete with dancers, a heavy bass undertone and a giant mosquito. 

Here are four tips GLACVCD gives that you can use to prevent mosquitoes:

  • Identify all containers that can hold water and either dump and drain the water once a week or throw away the containers.
  • Get insect repellent - When purchasing insect repellent in stores, look for any of the following active ingredients that have been proven to keep mosquitoes away: DEET, Picaridin, Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus and IR3535. 
  • Educate family and friends to understand the mosquito issues in your city and how they can help prevent them.
  • Call the GLACVCD for help at 562-944-9656 or submit an online service request at if the mosquitoes continue to be an issue around the home.
