The approach of warmer weather has prompted a call for Frankston residents to guard their properties against one of our most unwelcome summer visitors – the Aussie mozzie.

Frankston City Mayor Sandra Mayer said that as well as being irritating, mosquitoes could spread diseases such as Ross River virus, and she urged residents to check their properties for potential mosquito breeding sites. “Mosquitoes are a pain,” Cr Mayer said, “(but) there are things you can do now to protect yourself and your family from mosquito bites and prevent the spread of mosquito-borne diseases.”

Check your yard and surrounding areas for stagnant or pooling water where mosquitoes can breed. These might include the base of pot plants, disused containers or equipment in the yard, such as trailers or wheelbarrows, or neglected swimming pools. “Keeping fish ponds stocked with fish is an easy way to help reduce the breeding impact of mosquitoes, as is cleaning your gutters and drains regularly,” Cr Mayer said.

If you have a rainwater tank, make sure all covers, lids and inlet pipes are close-fitting so mosquitoes can’t get inside. You should also:

• Limit your time outdoors when mosquitoes are active at your property – usually dusk and dawn;
• Wear loose-fitting clothing at these times; and,
• Use mosquito repellent with DEET or picaridin on exposed skin.
