Chief Minister Adam
Giles (pictured), who is
in town today for the local
Show, said the recent hos-
pital figures have proved
the policies are starting
“These figures mark a
dramatic turnaround in a
consistent climbing trend
which began five years
ago when Labor was in
Government,” he said.
“They show that the tools
the Country Liberals have
given Police are work-
ing and that fewer men,
women and children are
ending up in Emergency
as a result.”
Health Minister Robyn
Lambley, also in town
for the Tennant Creek
Show, said the figures
showed there had been a
substantial reduction in
alcohol-related harm in the
community this year.
“It’s a success story
in anyone’s book and it
shows the Government’s

Chief Minister Giles said
a 51 per cent reduction in

compared to the same
period last year, reinforces
the hospital data.
“The majority of these
kinds of offences are
both domestic and alco-

inroads into protecting
women and children from
violence,” he said.
“We hope these impres-

of Tennant Creek and the
Barkly confidence that our

TENNANT Creek is officially
free of dengue mosquitoes, it
was revealed this week.
An infestation of the Aedes aegypti
detected in town in November 2011 has
been successfully eliminated following
a Department of Health program.
The mosquito was initially found to
be breeding at 146 properties in Ten-
nant Creek, in discarded receptacles
holding rainwater but also in buckets,
drums, pet water bowls, rainwater
tanks, tyres, fish ponds without fish,
unmaintained pools and spas, plant
cutting buckets, disused evaporative
coolers, bird baths and pot plant drip
Properties throughout the town were
inspected with likely breeding sites
emptied and sprayed.
It is the second time the mosquitoes,
which can transmit the dengue fever
virus, has been given short shrift.
Director of Medical Entomology
Nina Kurucz said the last detection of
the mosquito was in June last year but
because it can persist in the form of
drought-resistant eggs, the survey was
continued through the summer months
when rain was most likely.
“It is now safe to declare that the
infestation has been eliminated from
Tennant Creek,” she said.
“This means there is no longer any
threat of dengue transmission occur-
ring in the Northern Territory and no
further risk of the mosquito spreading
from Tennant Creek to other centres in
the Territory or to Western Australia.”
During the elimination program,
Medical Entomology field officers
conducted close to 9000 property
inspections in and around the town,
searching for mosquito larvae and
treating receptacles where the mos-
quito could breed.
Ms Kurucz said the success in rid-
ding the town of the mosquito would
not have been achieved without the
assistance of residents.
“We had fantastic support from all
residents in allowing access to their
homes and business properties to in-
spect for breeding sites and we thank
everyone for their cooperation,” she
“Staff from the Medical Entomol-
ogy branch, Environmental Health,
National Critical Care and Trauma Re-
sponse Centre and wider Department
of Health also showed a tremendous
amount of commitment to eliminating
the dengue mosquito.”
The Aedes aegypti, which is es-
tablished throughout Queensland,
is thought to have been unwittingly
brought across to Tennant Creek along
the Barkly Highway.
Although the elimination program
has now concluded, the town will
continue to be monitored for exotic
mosquitoes through the Department
of Health’s routine mosquito trapping
