Small amounts of water can breed large numbers of mosquitoes if the conditions are right. Contact us if you have concerns about mosquitoes and their breeding areas.
The breeding season is at its peak from September to May, but breeding does happen all year round.
Rainwater tanks can provide ideal conditions for mosquitoes and midges to breed. A tiny hole will allow mosquitoes into the tank and the chance for thousands of larvae to develop.
