Have mosquitoes? Call a GPS Pest Services Specialist

Mosquitoes are a common problem in a low-lying area like Mackay, with its waterways and moist environment. They also are a common disease carrier—an estimated 70% of Queensland residents have fallen ill from viruses caused by mosquito bites, including:

  • Dengue Fever
  • Ross River Fever
  • Barma Forrest Fever
  • Australian Encephalitis

Because they pose a health threat, it’s vital to get mosquitoes under control and prevent them from emerging. To minimize threat of mosquito bites, GPs recommends the following precautions:

  • Wear insect repellent such as Aerogard when outside—especially around areas with standing water, such as stormwater drains, gutters boats, potted plants, dishes, old tyres and pets’ water bowls.
  • Wear light-coloured clothing with fabric that fully covers arms and legs.
  • Minimise exposure at dawn and dusk, when mosquitos likely to feed.
  • Place a mosquito coil near frequently used outside areas
