Moreton Bay continues mozzie treatments Deception Bay, Clontarf, Rothwell, Kippa-Ring, Mango Hill, Griffin, Lawnton and Strathpine.
Moreton Bay Regional Council will continue its aerial mosquito management program this Wednesday, November 8 following recent high tides.
From 6.30am, council’s vector management helicopter will treat saltmarsh areas in Deception Bay, Clontarf, Rothwell, Kippa-Ring, Mango Hill, Griffin, Lawnton and Strathpine.
The aerial treatments will target mozzie larvae before they have the chance to emerge, and coincides with council’s ongoing program to treat mozzies on the ground in public places like parks, sports facilities and local reserves.
You can help to manage mozzie numbers in the region by taking a few simple steps in and around the home, where most mozzies breed.
Take five minutes to empty any containers that might have rainwater and change the water in your pet’s bowl, and make sure your swimming pool remains chlorinated.
People are encouraged to continue to apply mosquito repellent when heading outdoors, especially at dawn and dusk.
