ABSTRACT Aedes albopictus is a potential West Nile virus bridge vector in Northern Virginia; however, information regarding its virus transmission dynamics is limited, as this species is not readily collected in existing traps. This study used 5 replicates of a 5 × 5 Latin square to evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness of 2 novel host-seeking mosquito traps (the BG-SentinelTM and the Collapsible Mosquito Trap (CMT-20TM) in collecting Ae. albopictus, relative to a carbon dioxide (CO2… Expand
Field Efficacy of BG-Sentinel and Industry-Standard Traps for Aedes albopictus (Diptera: Culicidae) and West Nile Virus Surveillance
TLDR
The BG-Sentinel trap with and without lures provides effective chemical and visual cues for host-seeking Ae. Expand
Evaluating Surveillance Methods for Arboviral Vectors of La Crosse Virus and West Nile Virus of Southern Appalachia
TLDR
The results suggest using a combination of trapping methods when sampling for LACV and/or WNV mosquito vectors in southern Appalachia to enable accurate surveillance, improve control methods, enhance understanding of dispersal, and use for early detection of vectors and pathogens. Expand
The Zumba™ Mosquito Trap and Bg-Sentinel™ Trap: Novel Surveillance Tools for Host-Seeking Mosquitoes
TLDR
This study used 13 replicates of a 4 × 4 Latin square to evaluate the efficacy of 2 novel mosquito traps, the Zumba™ mosquito trap and the BG-Sentinel™ trap, against 2 existing host-seeking mosquito traps [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention miniature light and CDC Fay-Prince]. Expand
Assessing Carbon Dioxide and Synthetic Lure-Baited Traps for Dengue and Chikungunya Vector Surveillance3
TLDR
The new BG-Sentinel 2 trap collected more DENV and CHIKV vectors than the standard CDC light trap, Zumba Trap, and BG-Mosquitito Trap, but attracted fewer species, while the BGS2 Trap attracted the greatest number of mosquito species. 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
The impact of CO2 on collection of Aedes aegypti (Linnaeus) and Culex quinquefasciatus Say by BG-Sentinel® traps in Manaus, Brazil.
TLDR
It was showed that CO2 has primarily an enhancing effect on the efficacy of BG-Sentinel for capturing Culex spp in Manaus, and the positivity rate of the trap was increased, when CO2 was added. Expand
Efficacy of mosquito traps for collecting potential West Nile mosquito vectors in a natural Mediterranean wetland.
TLDR
BG-Sentinel traps that use CO(2) and attractants are as effective as CDC-CO( 2) traps for Culex mosquito species, Ochlerotatus caspius, and they are also highly efficient at capturing Anopheles atroparvus host-seeking and blood-fed females with or withoutCO(2). Expand
Environmental Determinants of Aedes albopictus Abundance at a Northern Limit of Its Range in the United States
Abstract. Aedes albopictus is a vector of arboviruses with high rates of morbidity and mortality. The northern limit of Ae. albopictus in the northeastern United States runs through New York stateExpand
An Improved Trap to Capture Adult Container-Inhabiting Mosquitoes
TLDR
Results obtained from the large, outdoor cage experiments indicated that trap captures of both mosquito species could be significantly enhanced by using black instead of white BGS traps combined with BG-Lure, and modified traps captured a significantly greater number of Ae. Expand
TrapTech R-Octenol Lure Does Not Improve the Capture Rates of Aedes albopictus (Diptera: Culicidae) and Other Container-Inhabiting Species in Biogents Sentinel Traps
TLDR
This study evaluated the effectiveness of the TrapTech lure, containing R-octenol, alone or in combination with the human skin lure in a BGS trap to capture Ae. Expand

An Update on the Potential of North American Mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) to Transmit West Nile Virus
TLDR
In determining the potential for a mosquito species to become involved in transmitting WNV, it is necessary to consider not only its laboratory vector competence but also its abundance, host-feeding preference, involvement with other viruses with similar transmission cycles, and whether WNV has been isolated from this species under natural conditions.

TLDR
Despite the relationship between collections of adult vectors and the incidence of disease remaining unknown, BG-Sentinel collections provide an alternative and less labor-intensive abundance measure for assessing risk of d Dengue virus transmission and success of dengue vector control programs.
