The Nevada County Vector Control Program will be holding Mosquito Fish Giveaways in Grass Valley on May 10th and June 7th at the Nevada County Fairgrounds by the Gentle Giant Monument from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. If all the fish available for that day have been distributed before 2 pm, the units will close before that time.

The mosquito fish need to be delivered to your pond within a two-hour period. The fish are not native to California and should not be placed into moving bodies of water like creeks or streams. The fish will eat mosquito larvae in ponds, watering troughs, bird baths, and unused swimming pools. This event is a drive-thru pick-up only, please do not park and walk up to get fish. Containers are provided to transport the fish.
