Our district inspectors investigate complaints related to flies, cockroaches, rats and mice. These "vectors" create public nuisances and may transmit diseases. Many of these complaints are related to substandard housing conditions in the unincorporated areas of Fresno County. Handouts pertaining to the elimination of these vectors are available from our office. For more information or to make a complaint, contact staff at (559) 600-3357.
