Trapping and monitoring: immature stages
We’ve seen the ways in which adult mosquitoes can be trapped for surveillance, but what about the immature stages, or eggs, larvae, and pupae?
In the past we have relied more heavily on estimating the population densities of immature mosquitoes than adults in our surveillance of Aedes. In this step Dr Mary Cameron explains why that is, highlighting some of the ways in which we might survey immature stages and how we can then identify population sizes.
