Eight aerial treatments for the control of mosquito larvae have been undertaken in response to high tide events this season.
Larval sites have been treated from Buffalo Road, Leschenault to areas around the Collie River and Clifton Park locality. Aerial treatments have been undertaken on the following days this season:
While mosquito numbers continue to drop, cases of Ross River virus continue to be regularly received by the Shire’s Health Team, therefore mosquito control remains a high priority.
The number of WA reported cases of Ross River virus has now exceeded the five year average.
There are currently 319 reported cased of Ross River virus, compared to 156 this time last year.
The Shire’s health team will continue to monitor the situation and will conduct further aerial treatments over the coming months.
