Title: Jabiru and Cooinda exotic mosquito survey 20-21 March 2019
Authors: Kurucz, Nina
Corporate Author: Medical entomology
Publisher: Department of Health
Abstract: Due to Jabiru and Cooinda being popular tourist destination, there is a potential for the introduction of the dengue mosquito Aedes aegypti by road from north Queensland, where this mosquito is endemic. This could be via transport of live adult mosquitoes, but is most likely via transport of desiccation resistant eggs in receptacles. Therefore, Medical Entomology carries out an annual wet season survey of water-holding receptacles in residential and commercial areas in Jabiru. Carbon dioxide-baited BG sentinel traps are also set for exotic mosquito surveillance. This report outlines the activities and results from the mosquito surveys conducted on 20 and 21 March 2019
