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 mosquito trap series is battery-powered and uses carbon dioxide (CO2) in the form of dry ice or a CO2 tank and an optional 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.


About the ABC Trap Kit 3 With CO2 (Tank)

This kit has all the capabilities of TRAPKIT1 but incorporates a convenient method for using compressed CO2 from cylinders as an attractant.

TRAPKIT3 includes FLOWSET1 which is comprised of a pressure regulator with output fixed at 15 psig, a 10 micron line filter, a 500 ml/min flow control orifice and quick-connect luer fittings. With a 5lb. CO2 tank (not provided) this trap can emit CO2 for approximately 38 hours. The CO2 flow rate can be adjusted by using different flow control orifices that are available as individual parts. TRAPKIT3 is shipped complete with everything necessary for trapping (except the CO2 cylinder).
