Q: What is a vector?
A vector is an organism that can transmit diseases from one organism to another.
 
Q: What is a green pool?
A "green pool" contains excessive organic matter such as leaves and debris which leads to bacterial and algal growth. Green pools are not properly maintained with filtration and chemicals. They are also perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes so contact the West Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District as soon as possible.
