We have been using BG-Sentinel™ (BGS) traps to monitor populations of Aedes albopictus as part of an area-wide project for management of this species. Although BGS traps are very effective for collecting adult Ae. albopictus, the device is expensive and must be properly maintained to be effective. The trap also poses a challenge for mosquito control personnel because secure locations free from the risk of vandalism or pet damage during surveillance efforts are scarce. Additionally, acquiring access to private property or finding suitable shaded habitats to place traps can be difficult. Here we summarize a protocol for BGS trap surveillance of Ae. albopictus in a highly urbanized environment during an active mosquito season.
