The DHCS conducts regular mosquito monitoring in Darwin, rural Darwin, Jabiru, Nhulunbuy, Katherine and Alice Springs, together with fortniqhtly ovitrap collections in Darwin specifically designed to collect container breeding mosquitoes. Airports and ports are also regularly monitored for mosquito introduction by the Quarantine Services.
