Mosquitoes can have a large impact on our region's tropical outdoor lifestyle and on the health of the region's community due to their nuisance capabilities and the potential to transmit mosquito-borne diseases such as dengue fever, Ross River virus and more.

Our Vector Control Unit aims to maintain mosquito populations at acceptable levels within Townsville through community awareness and participation and by implementing effective mosquito control measures.
