Mosquitoes have the potential to cause diseases such as Ross River Virus and Barmah Forest Fever in humans, as well as heartworm in dogs.
Receding floodwaters and pooling water from heavy rainfall can provide perfect conditions for mosquito breeding. This can result in more mosquitoes, increasing the potential for outbreaks of mosquito-borne diseases. The best way to prevent mosquito-borne diseases is to prevent mosquitoes from breeding.
To remove potential breeding grounds for mosquitoes, ensure to regularly inspect areas around your house and yard where water may be ponding and screen all openings to tanks, wells or other large water containers with wire gauze.
