Avoid Mosquito Bites
Following recent rain, ponded water is an ideal breeding place for mosquitoes. This includes water laying around in rural areas.
Depending on the type of mosquito, some of these insects can fly many kilometres. There are also those mosquitoes that will breed in containers around the home.
If outdoors, wear long loose clothing and use insect repellent to protect against mosquito bites. Inspect the yard and ensure rainwater tanks are screened and tip out water from any containers.
