Mosquito Control

Mosquitoes are a natural part of our environment. They can be a nuisance, and when they bite, some can spread serious disease such as Ross River virus or Barmah Forest virus infections. Both infections can be debilitating to humans and symptoms can include rash, flu-like symptoms such as fever, chills, headaches, joint and muscle pains (swelling or stiffness), fatigue, depression and being generally unwell. Using simple personal and household protection measures allows us to live with mosquitoes and reduce the risk of disease.

Council has in place a mosquito surveillance and control program. The program is coordinated by Council's EHO in collaboration with the University of South Australia's Mosquito Research Laboratory. Mosquito breeding sites are monitored for mosquito activity and treated if necessary.
