Attraction of Aedes triseriatus to carbon dioxide

Attraction of Aedes triseriatus to carbon dioxide

Journal of the American Mosquito Control Association 2(3): 355-357

Modified A.R. Pfuntner traps baited with either sublimating dry ice, a female white mouse or both of these together, were tested in Wisconsin during the summer of 1985 to determine the attractiveness of various sources of carbon dioxide to adults of Aedes triseriatus. Traps baited with dry attracted significantly more adult mosquitoes than were attracted to unbaited traps, or traps baited with a mouse. The added presence of a mouse did not increase the attractiveness of the dry ice.
