The CDC Miniature Light Trap 6V is lightweight and includes a collapsible catching cage, allowing for easy transportation.
This light trap operates on any 6 volt d.c. source. The use of a 30 amp hour motorcycle battery weighing about 10 lbs. is suggested. Typically, the the trap can operate for several nights before it needs to be recharged.
This lightweight, popular mosquito trap 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.
