Title: Mosquito control Goulburn Island, 1982
Authors: Northern Territory. Medical Entomology Section.
Issue Date: 1982
Publisher: Medical Entomology Section,
Abstract: The attached report "Vector Mosquito Control Goulburn Island February 1981 11 outlines the current known mosquito breeding situation close to the Warruwi community on Goulburn Island. The survey has indicated that the community is free of Aedes aegypti and there is only a moderate number of available breeding sites for this species. The presence of significant numbers of Anopheles farauti near the community emphasises the potential threat of malaria reintroduction. The breeding sites for Anopheles farauti approximately 1 km north of the community could have been responsible for the malaria epidemic on Goulburn Island in 1917 and the malaria outbreak in 1956-57.
