The shire has started fogging our townsites, to ensure that mosquitoes are controlled efforts are required from both the shire and residents. The fogging program is only partially effective, responsibility must still be taken by residents to ensure that they do everything possible to stop their homes becoming a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Mosquitoes breed in still water. The following are examples of potential breeding sites and control strategies that you can use around the home:
- seal any holes in septic tank / treatment plant to stop mosquito access.
- dispose of all tins, tyres and other rubbish containers that may hold water
- put sand around bases of pot plants to absorb excess water in the dish
- keep swimming pools chlorinated, salted or empty them completely when not in use for considerable period remove weeds and grass from drains to enable them to drain freely
- Keep roof guttering in good repair and regularly remove leaves and debris so that pools of water do not form
- Keep lawns and gardens well maintained so that you are not providing shelter for adult mosquitoes
- Install flywire screens on all windows and place self-closing wire screens on doors
- check, repair and replace any screens with holes (screens should be no coarser than 12 x 12 meshes per 25mm)
- Recognise and avoid areas of mosquito activity
- Use repellents containing DEET (diethyl toluamide) or Picaridin and ensure they are used as per manufacturer’ instruction
- Wear loose fitting and preferably light coloured clothing which covers as much of your body as possible
- Plan outdoor activities. If you are hosting an outdoor BBQ have repellent available for your guests
- Consider using residual surface sprays on structures particularly in shaded and sheltered areas. Use as per manufacturer’s instructions
