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
