Abstract

Three new devices for collecting and maintaining mosquitoes and other small insects are described. A suction tube, composed of two pieces of plastic transparent tube, the narrower fitted in the wider, with the mouth protected by the use of voile, is cheap and practical and can be transported around the neck. A 900-ml plastic transparent box is utilized for the restraint of sucked insects and, with the adaptation of two pieces of plastic tube, as a suction chamber.
