HELP­FUL TIPS

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

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.
