Authors: Warchot, Allan

Abstract: Medical Entomology of the Department of Health and Families (DHF) was requested by the Department of Construction and Infrastructure (DCI) to investigate biting midge abundance in Lot 4243 Town of Palmerston, particularly the area of Lot 4243 between the BMX club and Elrundie Ave/Wishart Rd. Lot 4243 is within the vicinity of tidal mangrove creeks that are known sources of pest biting midges, as revealed by previous baseline investigations around the Durack subdivision (Whelan et al 1998, Shivas & Whelan 2001). The area of Lot 4243 is being considered for the siting of rugby ovals and grandstand facilities, and there is the potential that nearby tidal mangrove creeks could provide appreciable levels of pest biting midges to the subject site.
