Mozzie Facts

Mozzie facts

Mosquitoes transmit dangerous viruses including Dengue Fever, Australian Encephalitis, Yellow Fever, Zika, West Nile, Ross River Fever and Malaria.

Australia has over 300 species of the blood suckers, each varying in its appetite for human blood.

Sensitivity to mosquito bites varies depending on the person. Most people have the common, mild reaction of swelling, redness, itchy skin and irritation at the puncture site. However, some people will have severe allergic symptoms from the saliva of mosquitoes and if bites are scratched they may become infected with bacteria.
