I wanted to both thank and get the news out to the community regarding a wonderful service El Dorado County Vector Control offers. We had no idea this service was available.We had a bad yellow jacket nest inside the eaves of our house. A friend suggested we contact vector control at 530-573-3197 and they were out to our house in one day!Phil Youngs and "Toogee" were so knowledgeable, helpful and friendly, too. The location was not easy but they successfully used a human safe spray and the nest was no longer active after only a few days; just as promised. This service is covered by our $6-per-parcel property tax assessment and ever so worth it! They are available for many types of "pest" control so remember, Tahoe Vector Control rocks!Thank you again!Melissa BirdSouth Lake Tahoe
