Heat wave: Being active in the heat
Your body produces more heat when you exercise, and that heat, combined with the outside heat, can create dangerously high body temperatures.
Mosquitoes this Summer- the Shire’s baiting program is underway but you can help!!
Mosquitoes breed in standing water – this may occur in old car tyres and other water holding containers, pot plant drip trays, septic and water tanks, roof gutters, domestic ponds, etc. By eliminating or preventing access for mosquitoes to these breeding sites you can help to permanently reduce mosquito numbers in your backyard.
