Mosquitos, Rodents and Ticks, also known as “Vectors”, can plague any of us, especially during the summer months in St. Louis when we experience a lot of rain and floods.

Your home may be vulnerable to pests in general, and vectors — Mosquitos, Rodents and Ticks — pests which can transmit diseases to humans, in particular.

The St. Louis American’s “No Appointment Necessary” host Dr. Denise Hooks-Anderson and Dr. Fredrick Echols, the Director of the City of St. Louis Department of Health, deliver this important video message about vectors and how to deter them.

This video is sponsored by the Saint Louis County Department of Public Health. Please call 314-615-0680, if you need assistance combatting vectors at home, or go to for more information on vectors and keeping your home healthy and safe.
