Ever wondered what the most deadly thing on earth is? Well running the numbers you might be surprised. Mosquitoes take the top spot coming in at between 750,00-1,000,000 deaths of humans per year (on an ongoing basis). It’s not just humans they kill; animals get their fair share as well so remember your pets or livestock in times of high activity.

Mosquitoes in Australia are rife, especially at the moment. This is due to recent high rainfall and floods. They spread many diseases such as Dengue, Ross River Virus, Barmah Forest Virus, Chikungunya and even West Nile Virus. The worst about some of these mosquitos -borne diseases is that they don’t have any known cures.

Ross River Virus is a major concern and notably documented as on the rise. The symptoms of Ross River Virus (RRV) are – fever, severe headaches, muscle and joint pain, extreme fatigue, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and rashes. Although not all these symptoms will present themselves it’s better to get checked out by your GP and have your place treated for mosquitoes and general pests by a qualified Viking technician.


We request that as much of the vegetation and grass etc. as possible be cut back prior to the treatment. This will help reduce harborage areas and increase the effectiveness of the treatment.

First we perform a thorough inspection of the site to discover possible sources and harborage areas of mosquitoes

Then a long-lasting deterrent microencapsulated fogging or misting agent is dispersed over nearby vegetation, under leaf of foliage and surfaces.

Stagnant water is treated, refreshed or removed

After the treatment, the technician will recommend how to get the best from yourtreatment, environmental modification techniques and best practices movingforward.

If you have ongoing mosquito issues even after this initial consultation and treatment we recommend increasing the frequency of treatments (every 3 months in humid periods) and physical prevention such as screens and nets.

Mosquitoes are notoriously bad flyers, rely on the wind for dispersal and are most active during times of twilight (dawn or dusk)



Only the female of the species requires a blood meal todevelop her eggs. The Larva goes through 4 stages before developing into a Pupa then unto the adultsexually reproductive stage of the life cycle.


Reduce stagnant water around your home/area. This includes vegetation that holds water, buckets, areas of bad drainage that allow pooling of water, blocked guttering or drainpipes, unused pools or ponds.
Cut back excess vegetation as much as possible. Mosquitoes use this as a place to rest until dusk/dawn.
Use insect repellents particularly containing DEET as the active ingredient.
Limit your time outside at dusk or dawn Wear full length loose fitting clothes
Disperse products that are known to repel mosquitoes such as coils or torches when
Install electronic aids such as Zappers or fanned products.
Due to the nature of flying insects, no warranty can be given. The treatment will greatly improve the chance you won’t get bitten and help you regain the use of your outdoor areas but it is not a silver bullet and should be used in conjunction with physical and environmental controls as advised.
Advice on ongoing maintenance periods and tailored treatments can be provided onsite after the tech has conducted their inspection.
