Western Port Bay has the southernmost mangroves in the world and a component to the mangrove eco system are mosquitoes.

We all know Mozzies and humans are not great friends.

Pesticides used in insect sprays found in the supermarket work on adult mosquitoes but not on larva or eggs and are harmful to bees, butterflies and other animals that are natural predators of mosquitoes. Fish, frogs, geckos and birds which eat mosquitoes can also be negatively affected by pesticides.

In order to protect our precious mangroves, seagrass and mud lands we know that residual barrier treatments to eliminate mosquitoes should not be used on such sentitives aquatic areas. 

So here at W.P.S.C we don’t spray mozzies and we try to eliminate and stagnant water and dampness close to our living areas. We are aware of mozzie times of action, sunset and sunrise. And we follow the light loose clothing rule.

Shoo for Good products, enhanced with Insect Shield® technology, eliminate the need to slather yourself with DEET or another sticky, smelly lotion or spray. Insect Shield’s active ingredient, permethrin, has been registered with the EPA since the 1970s. It’s approved for use by the entire family, including pregnant and nursing women, infants, and children.

During the repellency process, a small amount of permethrin is tightly bound to the fibres of our wraps where it remains effective for 70 washings, the expected lifetime of a garment. There’s no sticky feel, no odour, and nothing to reapply. 

It’s used in US military clothing, on hiking clothing and outdoor gear, and is similar to (but not as strong as) what's used on bed nets distributed throughout malaria-stricken regions. The World Health Organization lists permethrin as an essential and effective medicine.
