Check yards for mosquito breeding. Tip out, flush out, throw away or dry-store anything holding water in which mosquitos can breed.
Kill mosquitos in and around your home. Use ordinary surface spray in dark hiding places, under and behind furniture, curtains and inside cupboards. Repeat every six weeks.
Use mosquito zappers and coils around the house to kill mozzies and avoid being bitten.
If a team of professionals from Queensland Health arrive and offer to spray your place, let them do so.
