Abstract

A supporting stand to suspend rotating impactors and mosquito cages is a requirement for field tests during pesticide efficacy trials. We present schematics for a collection device and associated support system for sampling droplets of ultra-low-volume (ULV) sprays during mosquito adulticide applications. This system offers the advantages of cost efficiency, increased ease of deployment, off-season storage, visibility, stability, and ULV collection efficacy. Use of this system ensures that droplet collection and meteorological equipment is at appropriate and consistent heights between trials. The 2 arms of the support allow for placement of multiple cages, light-emitting or reflecting devices, and wind-indicating ribbons to be attached to the station. The support described makes possible deployment of stations over a wider variety of terrains, increasing the extent of field trials. Presentation of the simple design and fabrication of the rotating collection device (impactor), T-station, and its support is provided.
