The wet, humid weather over the last few months has caused the mosquitoes to come out in force. Mosquitoes aren’t just an annoying pest, they can also carry diseases. There have now been a couple of confirmed cases of dengue fever in Townsville.
Any water sitting around your home is a potential breeding ground for mosquitoes. So reduce the annoyance and your risk of catching a mosquito borne disease by removing any water sitting around your house. For example, old tyres, kids’ toys, buckets and pot plants are a few places where water can sit unnoticed and become a breeding ground for these blood sucking pests.
Another place that mosquitoes love, and a lot of people forget about, is the guttering on your roof. If your gutters are blocked with debris and have water and sludge sitting in them, then there’s a good chance you’re going to have a mosquito problem.
