Abstract

The original Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) gravid trap, with its mesh collection bag, can cause considerable damage to the captured mosquitoes. In an effort to reduce this damage and keep costs at a minimum, we modified our existing CDC gravid traps to accept a collection cup from a CDC light trap. This modification allowed for easier transport, freezing, storage, and removal of the mosquitoes. Modifying the CDC gravid traps takes little expertise or resources and can be completed quickly.
