Abstract: The Ilparpa Swamp, a 130 hectare area in Alice Springs has long been of public health concern as it provides extensive breeding habitat for the common banded mosquito Culex annulirostris. This mosquito species is a major vector for MVE as well as RRV. The MEB first identified extensive mosquito breeding in the swamp as early as 1974. The same year an adult mosquito monitoring program was set in place with occasional fogging of adult mosquitoes as a control measure. Since then the MEB has supported the ongoing surveillance and control program.
