Protect your family, protect your community
Tackling Mosquitoes Together is a community-driven project to reduce the disease risks and impacts 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 long-term health impacts.
The risks of mosquito-borne diseases are increasing. This is 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.
