Abstract: A biting insect assessment was conducted at the Andranangoo Creek West and Lethbridge Bay West mining prospects from the 29th September to the 1st of October 2005. This included detailed ground surveys for actual and potential mosquito breeding sites, assessment of aerial photography for potential mosquito and biting midge breeding sites, and initial adult biting insect trapping at both mining prospects. The early report production meant that information from subsequent peak season adult biting insect trapping in November 2005, and January and May 2006 had to be produced in a separate supplementary report. Therefore some conclusions in the first report were drawn based on field inspections and desktop observations, and not on trap data. The following report highlights the findings of the supplementary trapping, with new conclusions in regards to mosquitoes and biting midges. Trapping conducted for the Andranangoo Creek West and Lethbridge Bay West Biting Insect Assessment Report (Warchot & Whelan 2005) is referred to as ‘initial trapping’ in this supplementary report.
