Reports of Fly Infestation

Reports of fly infestation at N/W corner of Ave. 62 & Jackson St having negative impact on La Quinta Residents. Residents of this area are reporting a reoccurring fly infestation around this area. The reporting parties clarified that this location is one of many that are contributing to the fly infestation issue. The City of La Quinta's purpose and goal is to get representatives of each respective agency together to determine who has enforcement authority, and to examine if there are existing Best Maintenance Practices (BMP's) for the rural properties South East of the Trilogy development at Monroe St. and Ave. 60 to implement to mitigate, and/or reduce the fly population. 

These are some of the agencies that can be contacted to report the fly infestation concern.

  • Coachella Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District (760) 342-8287
  • Riverside Country Code Enforcement (760) 393-3344
  • CA Dept of Food and Agriculture (760) 776-8208
