Why do we monitor mosquito numbers and species?
Most mosquitoes are considered a nuisance, and some species are known vectors of the Ross River Virus (RRV) and Barmah Forest Virus (BFV).
RRV and BFV can significantly impact an infected person’s lifestyle. Symptoms can include painful and/or swollen joints, sore muscles, aching tendons, skin rashes, fever, tiredness, headaches and swollen lymph nodes.
