Protect your family, protect your community
Tackling Mosquitoes Together is a community-driven project to reduce the disease risks and nuisance of mosquitoes in our homes and communities in the Northern Rivers.
We all find mozzies a nuisance, but not everyone knows that they also spread diseases that can cause serious illness and have long-term health impacts.
The risks of mosquito-borne diseases are increasing due to the impacts of climate change and extreme wet weather events that make breeding conditions more favourable for mosquitoes.
By taking action together, we can:
- reduce the number of mosquitoes breeding in water-holding containers in our backyards
- protect ourselves and our families from exposure to mosquitoes
- reduce the public health risks caused by mosquitoes
- be better prepared for any future climate related impacts of mosquitoes.
If we all do our bit in our own backyard, together we will protect our families and the community.
