Abstract

Reliance of sound mosquito trapping strategies to generate surveillance data are recognized fundamental activities in professional integrated pest management programs. Responsible mosquito and vector control programs should use these data to drive operational control decision making. In this vein, mosquito trapping will be explored from its early beginnings to present day activities. Emphasis will be placed on choosing the most appropriate trap type for the intended purpose and combining several trapping methodologies to meet district needs.
