Barwon Heads mosquito control - is treatment undertaken at the Barwon Heads Village Park?

No - aerial treatments have been undertaken at Village Park or anywhere close to townships.

In response to community requests, isolated and targeted application of pyrethrum (commonly found in personal insect repellents and household fly sprays) was undertaken in sections of dense vegetation within the park. This was to reduce adult mosquito populations and any reinfestation of nearby wetlands.

The last time this was done was in 2003.
