Title: Palmerston eastern suburbs biting insect assessment
Authors: Warchot, Allan

Publisher: Medical Entomology, DHCS
Abstract: The Department of Planning and Infrastructure (DPI) recently released a parcel of land adjacent to Rosebery and Moulden to become the new urban residential suburb of Bellamack. Further land releases are proposed to create the new suburbs of Johnston, Zuccoli and Mitchell, as part of the Palmerston Eastern Suburbs. These proposed suburbs are potentially exposed to significant levels of pest biting midges. In particular, parts of Bellamack, Mitchell and Zuccoli are located in areas of potentially high biting midge abundance (Liehne 1985), because these suburbs are within 1.5km of tidal mangrove areas of Mitchell Creek, Brooking Creek and the Elizabeth River.
