Mosquito management

We have been providing mosquito management activities in the region for over twenty years.

What we do

We coordinate this program in accordance with the Department of Sustainability and Environment Framework.

We carry out a mosquito management program in our coastal areas each year.

This mosquito management program involves monitoring and treatment of major mosquito breeding sites in the Geelong area.

All activities are carried out according to Australian best practice principles and ensure the environment is not adversely affected. We use approved biological products in our mosquito control.

The program normally operates from August to late March each year. Generally, mosquito numbers are low during the winter months, and monitoring and treatment are minimal during this period.

There are limitations to any mosquito management program and this why there are still mosquitoes in the area.

We also provide educational material for use in school and in the home.

What you can do

You can check your property for possible breeding sites around your home.

You can take simple steps to protect yourself from mosquitoes.
