Product Details

The ABC Trap Series

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 kit includes the American Biophysics CO2LID which is an insulated 2 liter container, assembled directly to the top of the trap, with a built-in manifold to provide CO2 at a continuous rate of approximately 500 ml per minute.
