People in NSW, Victoria, SA and Queensland are being warned of a potential mosquito plague expected to hit these areas as summer approaches and many areas experience unusually high levels of rainfall and flooding.
Experts say the still, warm waters around Victoria and other areas are a perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes.
We can expect the mosquito problem to get worse over the next few weeks, until the weather starts drying up again, experts warn.
While we all want to get out and start enjoying the warmer weather, make sure you and your family are protected. Also keep your home safe by ensuring mosquitoes can’t get in. Have your doors and windows covered with mosquito screens.
