Abstract

A delayed release mechanism was designed for a mark–recapture study that evaluated the flight behavior of anopheline mosquitoes in Belize, Central America. The design prevents marked mosquitoes from being released until after a set time. The time lag allows researchers to return to collecting posts before release and reduces the potential of marked females tracking an odor plume generated during the release procedure. This is especially important in study designs evaluating temporal host-seeking behavior patterns. Detailed descriptions of the design are presented.
