Abstract Collection methods currently used for large‐scale sampling of adult Stegomyia mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) present several operational limitations, which constitute major drawbacks to the epidemiological surveillance of arboviruses, the evaluation of the impact of control strategies, and the surveillance of the spreading of allochthonous species into non‐endemic regions. Here, we describe a new sticky trap designed to capture adult container‐breeding mosquitoes and to monitor their… Expand
Evaluation of a sticky trap for collecting Aedes (Stegomyia) adults in a dengue-endemic area in Thailand.
TLDR
A trial carried out in 2 dengue-endemic villages in Thailand to compare the ability to collect Aedes adults of a sticky trap versus a CDC backpack aspirator, which has been used routinely at the study area for entomological/epidemiological surveys. Expand
Development of the Gravid Aedes Trap for the Capture of Adult Female Container-Exploiting Mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
The GAT is an effective, practical, low cost, and easily transportable trap, features that are essential in large-scale monitoring programs, particularly in areas where funding is limited. Expand
Field evaluation of sticky BR-OVT traps to collect culicids eggs and adult mosquitoes inside houses.
TLDR
The results demonstrated that the sticky BR-OVT trap is a useful tool for the collection of adult culicids of medical importance and offers an innovative way to collect C. quinquefasciatus eggs and adults in a single trap. Expand
Evaluation of Sticky Traps for Adult Aedes Mosquitoes in Malaysia: A Potential Monitoring and Surveillance Tool for the Efficacy of Control Strategies
TLDR
Assessment of the performance of sticky traps found that Model F was selected as the most effective and practical sticky trap, which could serve as an alternative tool for monitoring and controlling dengue vectors in Malaysia. Expand
New adhesive traps to monitor urban mosquitoes with a case study to assess the efficacy of insecticide control strategies in temperate areas
TLDR
The results support the potential of the three adhesive traps tested in passively monitoring urban mosquito adult abundance and seasonal dynamics and in assessing the efficacy of control measures, and provide a preliminary indication on the effectiveness of common mosquito control strategies carried out against urban mosquito in European urban areas. Expand
Adult Mosquito Trap Sensitivity for Detecting Exotic Mosquito Incursions and Eradication: A Study using EVS Traps and the Australian Southern Saltmarsh Mosquito, Aedes camptorhynchus
TLDR
The sensitivity (i.e., detection probability) provided by carbon dioxide-baited EVS traps for adult female Australian southern saltmarsh mosquitoes, Aedes camptorhynchus, a recent biosecurity problem for New Zealand was determined. Expand
Evaluation of a sticky trap (AedesTraP), made from disposable plastic bottles, as a monitoring tool for Aedes aegypti populations
TLDR
AedesTrap was shown to be capable of capturing A. aegypti and other culicidae, providing information on the adult mosquito population, and allowing the identification of areas critically infested by mosquitoes. Expand
Evaluation of sticky ovitraps for the surveillance of Aedes (Stegomyia) albopictus (Skuse) and the screening of oviposition attractants from organic infusions
TLDR
Since mosquitoes that are attracted to organic infusions but lay no eggs cannot be detected using a standard ovitrap but can be collected and counted in sticky ovitraps, the latter may be a better choice when screening for mosquito attractants (rather than oviposition stimulants) in such infusions. Expand
Trapping the Tiger: Efficacy of the Novel BG-Sentinel 2 With Several Attractants and Carbon Dioxide for Collecting Aedes albopictus (Diptera: Culicidae) in Southern France
TLDR
A synergistic effect of attractant and carbon dioxide that significantly increased twofold to fivefold the capture rate of Ae. Expand
A simple and efficient tool for trapping gravid Anopheles at breeding sites
TLDR
A simple trap that collects ovipositing Anopheline and Culicine mosquitoes that consists of an acetate sheet coated in glue that floats on the water surface has clear potential for the study of oviposition site choice and productivity, gravid dispersal, and vector control techniques which use Oviposition behavior as a means of disseminating larvicides.

An adulticidal sticky ovitrap for sampling container-breeding mosquitoes.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that sticky ovitraps, being adulticidal, have potential as a supplementary control measure, especially for quarantine programs designed to prevent the import and export of container-breeding vector mosquitoes at sea- and airports. Expand
The use of sticky ovitraps to estimate dispersal of Aedes aegypti in northeastern Mexico.
TLDR
The method of sticky ovitraps proved to be useful and inexpensive for Ae. Expand
Discovery of a Widespread Infestation of Aedes albopictus in the Torres Strait, Australia
TLDR
Aedes albopictus was detected on 10 islands and comprised 100% of the day-biting container-breeding mosquitoes on Yorke and Stephens Islands and was present in low densities in 2004 and that there were 3 genetically distinct mitochondrial haplotypes on YorKe Island in April 2005. Expand
Mark–release–recapture study to measure dispersal of the mosquito Aedes aegypti in Cairns, Queensland, Australia
Abstract.  In Queensland, Australia, in response to isolated cases of dengue infection, larval control of the vector Aedes aegypti (L.) (Diptera: Culicidae) is targeted at breeding sites within 200 mExpand
[Aedes albopictus (Diptera: Culicidae) in Rome: experimental study of relevant control strategy parameters].
TLDR
Preliminary observations suggest that whenever alternative larval biotopes other than sewer catch basins are widely available, they might be more productive and/or preferred substrates to catch Basins for Ae. Expand

Guidelines for assessing the efficacy of insecticidal space sprays for control of the dengue vector Aedes aegypti.
TLDR
Two methods, infusion-baited ovitraps and backpack aspirator collections, sample different portions of the adult mosquito population to enable public health authorities to assess the impact of space spray applications of insecticides by monitoring the Ae. Expand
