Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Surveillance, research, and control of mosquito-borne diseases such as West Nile virus require efficient methods for sampling mosquitoes. We compared the efficacy of BG-Sentinel and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)-CO(2) traps in terms of the abundances of host-seeking and blood-fed female mosquitoes and the origin of mosquito bloodmeals. Our results indicate that 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 without CO(2). The CDC-CO(2) trap is the least efficient method for capturing blood-fed females. BG-Sentinel traps with attractants and CO(2) were significantly better at capturing mosquitoes that had fed on mammals than the unbaited BG-Sentinel and CDC-CO(2) traps in the cases of An. atroparvus and Cx. theileri. These results may help researchers to optimize trapping methods by obtaining greater sample sizes and saving time and money.
