With reports of mosquito-borne disease on the rise, many of us will rely on mosquito coils to enjoy the outdoors.
To fight the bite safely and prevent structure fires, the MFS advises:
- 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.
