Surveillance of Culicoides is currently carried out in every European country affected by BTV, most commonly using standardized light-suction traps that sample the population of adult Culicoides present. To date, however, it is not clear whether these trap catches accurately reflect the biting population of Culicoides . 2. In our study, we carried out… CONTINUE READING
