We have now tested mozzie eggs collected by hundreds of 'Zika Mozzie Seekers' across the Metro South Health region. Check out the 'Mozzie Maps' below for an overview of the Round 2 results (second wave of egg trapping) and the previous Round 1 results.

Look out for your invitation to stay part of the Zika Mozzie Seeker team and trap eggs for the third time this year.

All clear for Zika mozzies: At the current stage of testing, no Zika mozzie eggs (Aedes aegypti species) have been identified. Any eggs found are from other domestic mozzie species.

What do the results mean?

The circles on the maps above indicate the locations of 'Zika Mozzie Seekers' and the approximate number of eggs on their collection strips.

Zero eggs This is an important result. It might mean there are no domestic mosquitoes at your place. Otherwise, it could indicate an issue with the set up of your trap or be related to the recent run of very hot weather, which meant mozzie numbers could have been lower than expected in some areas. 

1-75 eggs A low number of eggs

76-200 eggs An intermediate number of eggs

201-1,000 eggs A high number of eggs

Over 1,001 eggs A very high number of eggs

If you have mozzie eggs (especially intermediate, high or very high), take steps to prevent mozzies around your home. 

How to prevent mozzies 

There are several effective ways to reduce the number of mozzies around your property, and reduce your chances of being bitten. One great example is removing water tanks and containers from your garden. 

Taking steps to prevent mozzies can reduce your chances of contracting diseases spread by mozzies and make your outdoor environment more pleasant.
