Avoid Mosquito Bites

Nov 13, 2018 | Front Page Feature, News

Protect yourself against mosquito bites.  Not only are they irritating, mozzie bites can also spread disease.

Different types of disease-carrying mosquitoes can bite at different times of the day, so it’s important to be vigilant at all times.

  • Install or repair insect screens on all doors and windows, especially in sleeping areas.
  • Use insect repellent containing DEET or Picaridin, to protect against mosquito bites.
  • Wear long, loose clothing to help protect yourself from bites (light coloured clothes are best).
  • Use a plug-in insecticide vaporiser (indoors) or mosquito coils (outdoors).
  • Use a mosquito net when camping.
