Tweed Valley residents have been warned to do their part to prevent the breeding of mosquitoes as flood waters recede.
As is always the case, flood waters present the ideal conditions for mosquitoes to breed and The Council has called on residents to take the necessary precautions around their home.
Receding flood waters and heavy rains have left temporary pools in paddocks and salt marsh areas. Containers around homes have also been filled with water, which provide the ideal breeding habitat for mosquitoes.
It’s important that we have our windows and doors covered with insect screens to keep mosquitoes out of the home.
