5:09 am
working around the clock to try and make sure that they are get these out here. they want to eliminate these mosquitoes and make sure that they don't spread this species. it's the one of the first they found in this county. it's in martinez. so the right now they're really focusing their treatment and elimination efforts there. they're doing surveillance and treatment in the area where they found the mosquitoes in martinez to make sure that eliminated before becoming widespread. officials say these mosquitoes are very aggressive day biters that can transmit viruses like zika and diseases like yellow fever, mosquitoes can hide in vegetation and debris, which makes it hard to find and eliminate them. so the control district is really setting up traps. they're going door to you and to your door and say, - can we look in your backyard, so be aware of that. this is a specific species is not native to california are usually found in tropical areas around the world. they're introduced through travel most commonly when people move and they bring in potted plants or maybe the party plans are brought here to be sold. these invasive mosquitoes are small

5:11 am
growing. now, the last time they saw this specific mosquito species in california was about 10 years ago. so that's why it's so important to get this out here and make sure you report any of those mosquito bites. very important. darya james food, mosquitoes that could out they're attracted to me by so yeah, get rid of so i want to clarify. and if you know this, so it's no other counties. >> it has not been the this type of mosquito has not been found in any other counties. >> contra costa county says the first species that they have found. and so then they said the last time they saw in california is 10 years ago. so from understanding, yeah, it looks like contra costa counties from the species and they're trying to make sure it doesn't spread. yeah, more counties all right, sarah, thank you very much. you 5.11 now. still ahead on the kron 4 morning news. new covid variants are emerging. >> in different countries
