Mosquito Index: beat the mozzies this summer!
A world-first Mozzie Index has been launched where you can put in your suburb and it will provide a weekly forecast for how bad mozzies are in your area.
The site has been launched by mosquito repellant producer, Aeroguard.
After Burnso was bitten by his first mozzie of the year at the weekend, the Breakfast boys reckoned this story was worth chasing up with Dr Cameron Webb, Medical Entomologist at the University of Sydney.
"We're expecting a return to hot dry conditions which means more mosquitoes this summer," Dr Webb said.
"The basis of the Mozzie index is we can now provide a forecast of what mosquitoes will be like in your area based on local environmental conditions."
Dr Webb told listeners to visit mozzieindex.com.au to find out their mozzie forecast.
"I'd like to see how indicative the index is of the mozzie population this summer," he said.

Ross Stevenson and John Burns entertain listeners with their razor sharp wit and oddball humour every morning. And every day the best segments of their on-air - and sometimes off-air - program are published on 3AW.com.au.
Hi Gerald and Gillian - thank you for your comments. At this time of year, the levels in many areas will be similar given that we're not really in the peak summer period yet. For Melbourne, we wouldn't expect that much change will happen until there is substantial rainfall and/or tides in coastal regions from which we will likely see some differences in results. We really do appreciate your feedback - do keep using the Index and make sure you keep yourselves protected!The Mozzie Index Team Tuesday 23 October, 2012 - 4:18 PM
Mozzies killed my pet rabbit as this state is riddled with the myxomotisis virus which is a very cruel way of eradicating bunnies and it will continue because nobody cares I've tried to voice my dissapointment to Julia gillard in a letter she did reply but nothing will change so to all bunny owners be vigilant keep your bunnies inside if you have to away from mozzies its devastating. So I couldn't care less about humans being bitten.poptart Monday 22 October, 2012 - 7:28 PM
Nice pickup Gillian. Every Suburb I put in gave the same answer as well.Gerald Monday 22 October, 2012 - 9:12 AM
