Brisbane City Council along with program partners Queensland Health and the Queensland Institute of Medical Research have commenced a voluntary household mosquito survey. Conducted over two years, the survey will include all suburbs of Brisbane.

The purpose of the survey is to monitor the presence of any mosquito species of medical significance (e.g. the Dengue mosquito). Early detection of the Dengue mosquito can help authorities prevent any outbreak of Dengue fever.

The survey team is comprised of two people who will carry identification cards that will be displayed to the property occupier.
