Ipswich City Council warns that this summer may be shaping as a peak mosquito season.
Division 2 Councillor Paul Tully said the warm, wet weather would give the perfect environment for mosquitoes to breed.
He said residents could check their properties for any containers which hold water, the preferred breeding ground for mosquitoes.
"Items such as buckets, tubs, wheel barrows and tyres should be emptied or removed.
"If you have pot-plant bases, it is a good idea to fill them with sand. Swimming pools should be regularly treated," Cr Tully said.
