What we do

Our mosquito management program involves monitoring and treatment of major breeding sites, in line with the breeding cycle of the three main mosquito species in the Geelong/Surf Coast area.

The program normally operates from August to late March each year. Generally mosquito numbers are very low during the winter months, therefore monitoring and treatment are not needed during this period.

There are however limitations to any responsible program of this nature and this is why there will still be mosquitoes in the area.

We can also provide educational material for use in school and in the home.

Our Environmental Health Unit coordinates Council's mosquito management program in partnership with the City of Greater Geelong. You can find further information on the City of Greater Geelong Mosquito Management page.
