Abstract: Medical Entomology of the Department of Health visited Katherine and Mataranka between 12th and 14th February 2014 to carry out mosquito surveillance and control due to high rainfall (417mm) that occurred in Katherine between 1st January and the 2nd February 2014. Operations included larval mosquito surveys at known potential mosquito breeding sites in Katherine based on the Katherine 2006 flood report, setting of adult mosquito CO2 baited EVS traps and exotic mosquito larval surveys at various locations in Katherine and Mataranka to confirm the absence of the dengue mosquito Aedes aegypti and other exotic mosquito species.
