Mosquito fogging to commence in Surat & Injune this week

Fogging will be undertaken in Surat and Injune this week, to help control and reduce mosquito and sand fly numbers as a result of the recent rain.

Fogging is set to commence in the morning between 6.30am and 7.30am in Surat tomorrow (Tuesday, 13 March) and Thursday, 15 March and in Injune on Wednesday, 14 March.

The fogger, which sounds similar to a motor vehicle with no exhaust, uses a mix of a chemical and diesel to create the ‘fog’ and kills flying adult mosquitoes and sand flies. It does not harm humans or pets.

For more information and/or tips on reducing mosquito numbers at home, please contact Council’s Environment Team on 1300 007 662.
