Avoid Mosquito Bites

Oct 19, 2018 | Front Page Feature, News

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.

For further information refer to North Burnett Regional Council’s website, contact Council’s Environmental Health team by phone on 1300 696 272 (1300 MY NBRC) or email Council.
