Abstract: Services provided by the Medical Entomology Branch aim to reduce the impact of biting insects on the people of the Northern Territory. These include the prevention of the re-introduction of malaria, the prevention of the introduction of exotic mosquito vectors of dengue, insecticide and engineering programs for mosquito control, mosquito surveillance programs in the major towns, guidelines and advice on biting insects for both large and small scale developments, a public inquiry service, a public awareness program, and incidental research on biting insects and mosquito borne viruses. Major clients are the general public, but significant clients include local government, the Department of Lands Planning & Environment, Parks & Wildlife Commission, Department of Defence, consultants and developers for development and planning advice, and environmental health officers in all regions for mosquito control and mosquito prevention strategies. The main community link is through mosquito public awareness programs and the Mosquito Control Advisory Committee, which provides public feedback and a means of informing the public and various other organisations about the services of Medical Entomology.
