Framework for Mosquito Management in Victoria - DSE 2004

Framework for Mosquito Management in Victoria. More than 275 species of mosquitoes are found in Australia. Fortunately, only a few species bite humans and fewer still are vectors of human diseases. Arboviruses (arthropod borne viruses) are viruses transmitted by mosquitoes. In Victoria they can cause Murray Valley Encephalitis (MVE), Ross River Virus (RRV) and Barmah Forest Virus (BFV) diseases. Other arbovirus diseases reported in Victoria (such as dengue fever) have been acquired interstate or overseas.
