Due to tidal activity Council will conduct an aerial mosquito treatment program tomorrow (Friday 30 November), weather permitting, targeting saltmarsh areas in Deception Bay, Burpengary East, Uhlmann Road, Beachmere, Ningi, Toorbul, Elimbah and Bribie Island.

The treatment targets mosquito larvae before they have the chance to emerge, and forms part of council’s ongoing program to treat mosquitoes in public places like parks, sports facilities and local reserves across the region.

As mosquitos can fly up to 10km from saltmarsh areas it is important to target them where they breed to stop their spread across the region.

Council is urging residents to also manage mosquito 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 also encouraged to apply mosquito repellent when heading outdoors, especially at dawn and dusk.
