Abstract: The Hickey’s Farm is located approximately 2.5 kilometres north west of the Katherine town centre adjacent to a populated rural area (Fig. 1). An approximate 220-hectare area of this private property is subject to seasonal inundation for up to six months of the year and is known locally as Hickey’s Lake. A large part of the margin of the inundated area produces a significant mosquito-breeding habitat, especially for the common banded mosquito Culex annulirostris. This species is a major vector for Ross River virus (RR) and Murray Valley encephalitis virus (MVE), with the latter causing a potentially fatal human disease.
