To assist in controlling mosquitoes, the following preventative measures should be taken:
- Ensure that all educt vents to plumbing installations are fitted with a mosquito proof cowl.
- Remove all rubbish, which may hold water, from around the yard e.g. old drums, tyres and disused containers.
- Ensure all gutters are clean
- Ensure that water tanks have a properly fitted lid and treat water with paraffin or kerosene in sufficient quantity to provide a film of oil across the surface.
