|Title:||Biting insect survey of Milingimbi, 7-9 April, 2003|
|Publisher:||Medical Entomology Branch.|
|Abstract:||Milingimbi is an Aboriginal community in Arnhem Land, 206 km West from Nhulunbuy. The population is 920 (NT government intranet, 30/6/2003). The community is located on Milingimbi Island (Fig. 1 ). Near the end of February 2003 the Milingimbi community council expressed concerns over increased mosquito numbers to Environmental Health Officer Bob Small, who requested the Medical Entomology Branch (MEB) to visit the community, assess the situation and advise on strategies to reduce mosquito problems. Two MEB officers visited Milingimbi on 7-9 April 2003 and carried out a comprehensive biting insect survey, including biting insect trapping, larval mosquito surveillance and a receptacle survey. The results of this survey and the assessment are presented in this report.|
