Buggy vs bugs

A 6WD amphibious vehicle will be used to fight mozzies plaguing Maylands foreshore.

Bayswater city council will shell out $30,920 to buy and ship the all-terrain vehicle from Queensland. The model has been used successfully for nearly 20 years in Queensland to reach otherwise inaccessible breeding areas.

The council allocated $166,970 in its 2013/14 budget to fight mozzies after the WA government broke a pre-election pledge made by Maylands Liberal candidate Sylvan Albert.
