Abstract

Field evaluation of Lurex 3™, 1-octen-3-ol (octenol), and CO2 sachet as baits in Mosquito Magnet® Pro traps (MMP) for collecting adult mosquitoes was conducted at 2 different locations in northeast Florida. A total of 18 species of mosquitoes were collected by the MMP baited with the 3 attractant baits in St. Augustine, FL. The MMP baited with octenol collected significantly more mosquitoes than the traps baited with Lurex 3 and the CO2 sachet. A total of 6 floodwater mosquito species were collected by the MMP baited with the 3 attractant baits in Elkton, FL. The MMP baited with Lurex 3 or octenol collected more mosquitoes than the MMP baited with CO2 sachet or MMP alone.
