AbstractIn this program Triton Systems will develop a novel freestanding, lightweight, compact, portable sampling device to collect a broad spectrum of adult flying insect disease vectors. The new trap will have a modular design with interchangeable parts for different vectors. The proposed trap will be nestable for easy transport, robust and energy efficient. The design will exploit known and available lures and baits. It will be adaptable with different options to attract a range of adult insects. The device will offer considerable advantages over the standard CDC trap and will also reduce the need for different surveillance devices in the field.
