There's some ambiguity here. In bacteria, Cocci means the cell is round. Not really very significant description, doesn't narrow things down much at all.
But, there's a fungal infection - Coccidioidomycosis (cocci) is an infection of the lungs caused by inhaling spores of the fungus Coccidioides immitis
I am going to go out on a limb and say that it is the fungal infection (the cause of "Valley Fever") that you are concerned with. I have not looked into ways of controlling it or reducing its occurrence or population, but I don't live or plan to live in an area where it is a recognized problem.
