Residents are reminded to inspect their residential and business premises for potential mosquito breeding sites following recent heavy rains experienced across the Territory.

General clean-up activities should include the removal of all receptacles, such as old tires, empty containers, discarded buckets, pots or pet feeding dishes, abandoned and derelict vehicles.  Water tanks, wells, buckets and boats, are to be properly covered.

Regular cleaning of yards and clearing of bushes also reduce mosquito breeding and the spread of vector borne diseases.
