We work closely with the community to seek feedback, respond to questions and provide information about our research
Our mosquitoes with Wolbachia are driven from Townsville to Charters Towers in mesh-covered cups.
Queensland scientists monitor numbers of Wolbachia mosquitoes that can block dengue and other viruses including Zika 

Charters Towers

We started releasing mosquitoes with Wolbachia in Charters Towers in October 2016.

Releases of mosquitoes with Wolbachia have now been completed across the city, with strong support from the local community.

We will be carrying out monitoring activities throughout 2017. We expect to see Wolbachia sustained at high levels in the local mosquito population, reducing the risk of dengue, Zika, and other mosquito-borne viruses in these high-risk areas.
