Livingstone sites a-buzz with mozzies after rain and tides

LIVINGSTONE Shire Council is advising residents to be aware of the potential risks associated with diseases from mosquitoes, following recent rain and large high tides.

The council's authorities are encouraging residents to take extra precautions to protect themselves.

A council spokesman said mosquitoes could transmit diseases like Ross River virus, Barmah Forest virus and Dengue fever.

The council manages mosquitoes by conducting house -to-house inspections in residential mosquito prone areas, monitoring rural and urban salt marsh areas and treating freshwater breeding sites.

Residents should also take their own measures.
