We compared the number of Aedes albopictus and Aedes aegypti females collected in CDC, duplex cone, bi-directional Fay, and new omni-directional traps in a series of trials in northern Florida during 1992 and 1993. Bi-directional Fay and omni-directional traps collected significantly more Ae. albopictus females than did the other traps tested. The bi-directional Fay trap collected significantly more Ae. aegypti females than did any other trap. The results of these studies indicate that these… Expand

Host-Seeking Height Preferences of Aedes albopictus (Diptera: Culicidae) in North Central Florida Suburban and Sylvatic Locales
ABSTRACT The response of Aedes albopictus to the BG-Sentinel, Omni-directional-Fay-Prince, and Mosquito MagnetX traps was evaluated in four suburban and four sylvatic habitats in north-centralExpand
Evaluation of Three Traps for Sampling Aedes polynesiensis and Other Mosquito Species in American Samoa1
TLDR
The BG-Sentinel trap captured the greatest number of the important filariasis and dengue vector Aedes (Stegomyia) polynesiensis at all 3 collection locations; however, its catch rate was not significantly different from that of the Fay–Prince trap at 2 of the 3 trapping locations. Expand
SCIENTIFIC NOTE EVALUATION OF THREE TRAPS FOR SAMPLING AEDES POLYNESIENSISAND OTHER MOSQUITO SPECIES IN AMERICAN SAMOA
TLDR
The BG-Sentinel trap captured the greatest number of the important filariasis and dengue vector Aedes (Stegomyia) polynesiensis at all 3 collection locations; however, its catch rate was not significantly different from that of the Fay-Prince trap at 2 of the 3 trapping locations. Expand
SCIENTIFIC NOTE EVALUATION OF THREE TRAPS FOR SAMPLING AEDES POLYNESIENSIS AND OTHER MOSQUITO SPECIES IN
TLDR
The efficacy and convenience of the BG-Sentinel suggest further research is warranted to evaluate its potential as a possible efficient and safe alternative to landing catches for sampling Ae. Expand
A comparison of seven traps used for collection of Aedes albopictus and Aedes aegypti originating from a large tire repository in Harris County (Houston), Texas.
TLDR
Battery-powered traps with contrasting color schemes and movement worked considerably better than stationary CDC miniatures without color or movement and captured nearly identical numbers of Ae. Expand
Comparison of Adult Mosquito Abundance From Biogents-2 Sentinel and Biogents Gravid Aedes Traps In Northeastern Florida1
TLDR
Overall, BG2S traps collected significantly more mosquitoes than the BG-GAT, regardless of species, and there was no significant difference between the 2 traps with respect to gravid status when total species and number of mosquitoes collected were compared. Expand
Comparative Laboratory Study on the Reaction of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus to Different Attractive Cues in a Mosquito Trap
Abstract The behavioral responses of Aedes aegypti (L.) and Aedes albopictus (Skuse) adults to several attractive cues, as reactions to mosquito traps, are compared in the laboratory, and differencesExpand
Efficiency of the CO2‐baited omni‐directional Fay‐Prince trap under semi‐field conditions and characterizing response behaviours for the yellow fever mosquito, Aedes aegypti
TLDR
Understanding the behaviours that mosquitoes exhibit during their encounter with particularly a visual trap may recommend trap improvements and contributes to the understanding of host‐seeking behaviour and how it might be exploited. Expand
