The ABC Trap Kit 1 contents include:
Researchers from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) invented the ABC Trap, also called the CDC Light Trap, in the 1950s. This lightweight, popular mosquito trap series is battery-powered and uses carbon dioxide (CO2), in the form of dry ice or a CO2 tank, and/or a light source, to attract mosquitoes into the trap. Light Traps are largely used to monitor the overall species mix and population levels within a surveillance network, as well as collect specimens for disease testing. A notable advantage to using Light Traps is their ability to capture a great variety of live mosquito species to use for disease testing along with their proven efficacy in the field.
This trap kit includes a polyester NET1 that features a removable bottom tray for ease of catch removal, a shelter for preventing catch desiccation and a velcro opening for aspirating live samples. A fixed hanging rope (ROPE1) with an adjustable clip and a 6-1/2’ power cord allows you the convenience of hanging the trap up to 7 ft. above ground level. This kit also includes BAT6/10, a gel-cell battery which is capable of operating the trap continuously for up to 72 hrs. when fully charged.
The ABC Trap Kit 1 is shipped with everything you need for trapping situations that do not require the use of integrally emitted CO2 as an attractant.
