Abstract: Initial investigations into potential biting insect problems for the new satellite town of Palmerston, 11 km south of Darwin, indicated that biting midges would be a potential problem (Whelan 1979). It was thought that heavy infestation would occur within about 1.6 km from a breeding place (Reye 1973). Based on this information and preliminary collections in the Palmerston area, a buffer zone of 1. 6 km was recommended between urban residential development and the mangroves (Whelan 1979). This buffer recommendation was incorporated into the initial plan for Palmerston.
