Mosquitoes: Cover Up, Repel, Eliminate!
Due to an active La Niña weather event occurring in the tropical Pacific, above average Spring and Summer rainfall is expected over the coming months. This encourages mosquito breeding. As a result of the potential for an increased mosquito breeding, it is important to remember the Fight the Bite principles:
- COVER UP and wear long, loose-fitting, light coloured clothing,
- REPEL mosquitoes using insect repellent containing DEET (diethyl toluamide) or picaridin, and
- ELIMINATE breeding sites around your home.
