Out and About

Fight the bite safely

MFS Mosquito Coil Image

Loving summer evenings outdoors?

Be sure to fight the bite safely; NEVER leave mozzie coils burning unattended, especially overnight.

Place coils in a sturdy metal/ceramic dish with a mesh cover that doesn’t allow embers to drop or blow onto flammable items & surfaces.

Extinguish mosquito coils by carefully breaking the smouldering end off, immersing it in water and storing it away from the home to completely cool.
