NZBEL has been in operation since 2001 and provides entomology identification services and technical advice for the Ministry of Health, New Zealand's 12 District Health Boards and a range of other clients including Border Health training for Authorised Officers.
We operate from Bell Road South, Gracefield Research Site, Lower Hutt. Contact details for the sites can be found in the Contact us section. 

Our Taxonomists are continually involved in collaborative research projects with other organisations including CRI's, Councils, Universities, and Government Departments as well as industry and private organisations. Past projects have included product testing for Mosquito, Blackfly and Willow Sawfly control, design and testing of insect traps, Mosquito and Tick taxonomy and ecology and vectors and vector-borne disease investigation. Our laboratory information brochure can be downloaded from Service Brochures. Additional PDF's and hard copies may also be available on request.
