Title: Biting insect investigations and comment on the proposed Newtown (Weddell) development, Darwin, NT.
Authors: Northern Territory. Medical Entomology Branch.
Issue Date: 1988
Publisher: Medical Entomology Branch.
Abstract: Biting insects may have a major influence on the viability of residential and other developments through their obvious effect on the quality of life, in limiting outdoor activities, and because of the diseases they transmit. The importance of these pests in determining the attractiveness of an area can be gauged by their effect on land values - which have increased four-fold in some instances, when the biting insect problem has been removed (Reye, 1981). The worst effects of biting insects can frequently be mitigated by appropriate steps in the planning stage. Attention to sound construction practices can further ensure there is no increase in breeding areas, and no need for costly rectification procedures.
