Mosquito Alert

As a result of the recent severe weather in many parts of NSW, some mosquito-born illnesses have begun to appear. To avoid mosquito bites and prevent infection, NSW Health advises the following: 

  • cover-up while outside with loose, light-coloured clothing and covered footwear, 
  • avoid being outdoors at dawn and dusk, 
  • apply insect repellent on exposed skin that contains DEET, picaridin, or oil of lemon eucalyptus, 
  • use insecticide sprays, vapour dispensing units and mosquito coils to repel mosquitos, 
  • cover openings such as windows and doors with insect screens,
  • remove water-holding containers outside your house where mosquitoes can breed.
