Title: Mosquito investigation, Ranger Mine Jabiru East 23/6/82
Authors: Northern Territory. Medical Entomology Section.

Abstract: Following a request from the Biologist, Mr John Bywater, of Ranger Mine, a brief investigation into the current mosquito situation at Jabiru East was conducted on 23/6/82. The mosquito monitoring program carried out by Mr Bywater in conjunction with the Northern Territory Department of Health, had indicated a considerable rise in mosquito numbers in mid-June. The numbers were such that they constituted a serious pest problem. In 1981 there had been cases of mosquito borne Australian arthritis from the Jabiru area and the indication of high numbers of the vector of this disease warranted an inspection of the current situation with possible recommendations to reduce mosquito numbers.
