Pest Management Plan
Under the Land Protection (Pest and Stock Route Management) Act 2002 Local Governments are responsible to, amongst other things, ensure declared pests are managed within their areas in accordance with the Act and principals of pest management. The Regulation declares certain animal and plant species to be pests and lists Local Governments that are required to complete Stock Route Management Plans.
Some mosquitoes have the potential to transmit various diseases, the most notorious of which is the Ross River Virus. In the local area, the type of mosquito that transmits Ross River Virus will generally only breed in stagnant water but other nuisance mosquitoes can breed elsewhere.
Consider installing insect screens on your house, avoid being outside during mosquitoes' peak activity periods at dusk and dawn, use a quality insect repellent and wear long clothing where possible.
