Title: National Disease Control Program Northern Territory report, 1986/87
Authors: Northern Territory. Medical Entomology Branch.
Issue Date: 1987
Publisher: The Branch
Abstract: The Northern Territory contributions to the National Disease Control Program have continued to reduce the numbers of insects of medical importance in the Northern Territory. Significant reductions in the area available for mosquito breeding in Darwin have been achieved by engineering means, while chemical and biological insecticide applications in population centres such as Darwin, Alice Springs, Nhulunbuy and Jabiru have reduced the numbers of both pest and potential vector mosquitoes. Entomological advice on development proposals including rural, residential and industrial projects has ensured that potential mosquito problems have been reduced or avoided. Publicity and awareness campaigns involving the potential effects of mosquitoes have encouraged the people of the Northern Territory to take better self protection and mosquito avoidance measures, while investigations of mosquito activity in the major tourist areas will enable visitors to have a more pleasant and healthy visit to the "outback Territory" .
