Asian Tiger Mosquitoes

Whilst increasing climate variability might lift the risk of home-grown mosquito-borne disease, will the arrival of new exotic mosquitoes to Australian backyards be the real game changer?

Presenter Phillip Leason spoke to Dr. Cameron Webb, Mosquito Researcher, NSW Health Pathology about how we’ve managed to keep the Asian Tiger mozzies away from the Australian mainland.
