Mosquito Control

You may have noticed that the mosquitos are certainly biting in Mount Isa at the moment.

Just so you know, we at Council are very aware of the issue, and we’re doing what we can to be rid of these pesky insects.

Mount Isa City Council regularly visits mosquito breeding areas with environmentally safe products. Reports of mosquito infestations and breeding in public areas are always investigated by Council officers and areas are treated where necessary.
