It's always nice to see floods receding and a green bloom developing in NSW North Coast paddocks.
However, pools of water and boggy ground depressions last a while and are a boon for mosquitoes.
As Ross River Fever and Barmah Forest Fever occur in the region, it is also a time to be extra careful about being bitten. Slap on that repellent when outdoors and spray the house before you go to bed.
