February 2018 documentsmall-615

Kia Ora Koutou. This January has broken all the climatic records in New Zealand, with the hottest month on record. This year January has also been the mozziest January registered in the past years (Figure 3). However, it has not been the most numerous month in record, have a look to the last year chart in the December 2017 Border Health Newsletter, and check the larval numbers for March for an example.

 
Kia Ora Koutou. This February has shown very high mozzie numbers, breaking the record of last year’s Culex quinquefasciatus larvae, with everything suggesting that next month will be very active as well. In the news, Dengue Fever is spreading among the Pacific Islands, India and the Americas, while Chikungunya is spreading in Kenya. Meanwhile, scientists are focused on mosquito brains to help them to understand mosquito behaviour and also to help create a Zika vaccine.

Kia Ora Koutou. This month the Ministry of Health has released a new video to launch the campaign with tips on how to prevent mosquito bites. If you travel overseas remember to Fight the bite – day and night! Watch the video here. Mosquito numbers have decreased in comparison to last month, and with the weather getting cooler it seems this tendency will continue over the next few months.
