Abstract

The effectiveness of the attractants l-octen-3-ol (octenol) and l-lactic acid (Lurex™) on the collection of Aedes albopictus, Culex tritaeniorhynchus, Cx. pipiens pallens, and Anopheles sinensis was first evaluated in Mosquito Magnet® Pro traps in Yamenkou and Badachu residential areas, Beijing City, and Lishui area, Zhejiang Province, China. The Mosquito Magnet Pro traps baited with octenol collected significantly more Ae. albopictus, Cx. tritaeniorhynchus, and An. sinensis, but fewer Cx. pipiens pallens than collection by the traps alone. There were no significant differences in the numbers of Cx. pipiens pallens, Cx. tritaeniorhynchus, and An. sinensis collected by Mosquito Magnet Pro traps baited with Lurex compared to the traps alone, but the Mosquito Magnet Pro traps baited with Lurex collected significantly more Ae. albopictus than the number collected by the traps alone at 2 areas in Beijing.
