Abstract: Alyangula is a mining town, located on Groote Eylandt, with approximately 400 properties. Routine adult mosquito monitoring, using CO2 baited EVS traps, has been conducted by GEMCO in Alyangula since July 1981. To ensure Groote Eylandt remains free of the dengue vector, ME visited Groote Eylandt between 30 January and 2 February 2017 to carry out an exotic mosquito survey. Operations included larval mosquito surveys at various properties in Alyangula, as well as setting of CO2 baited BG (BioGents) sentinel adult mosquito traps in the town, and conducting a mosquito larval survey at the Angurugu sewage ponds. This report outlines the activities and results from this survey.
