Moreton Bay Regional Council will continue its mosquito aerial treatment program on Sunday 10 March.
Council’s vector management helicopters will treat saltmarsh areas in Deception Bay, Burpengary East, Uhlmann Road, Beachmere, Ningi, Toorbul, Elimbah, and Bribie Island.
The treatments will target mosquito larvae before they have the chance to emerge and coincides with the council’s ongoing program to treat mosquitoes on the ground in public places like parks, sports facilities, and local reserves.
By targeting the mosquito larvae, where they breed, the treatment reduces the number of adult mosquitoes, that can fly up to 10 kilometres from the saltmarsh.
Council is urging residents to help do their part to manage mosquito numbers in the region by taking a few simple steps in and around the home, where most mosquitoes 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.
