Mosquitoes are widespread throughout Australia, and in most parts, the main mosquito season happens during the warmer months.
Mosquito species differ in their breeding habits, flight range, biting behaviour and preferences. Both male and female mosquitoes feed on nectar and plant juices, but only female mosquitoes bite, requiring a blood meal just before they lay their eggs. Mosquitoes usually spike in numbers after a period of heavy rains. Aside from their itchy bites, some mosquito species carry a lot of serious and fatal diseases such as Ross fever, Dengue Fever, Barmah Forest disease, and Murray Valley encephalitis. Mosquito infestation control and treatment is important to protect your family from these diseases.
