Awarded Outstanding Distinction
Created for entomological surveillance as part of the dengue fever control program.
Attracts and catch Aedes aegypti gravid females to provide information about the presence of adult mosquitoes in the surveillance area and collect samples of blood-fed mosquitoes for the conduct of viral analysis.
The trap was designed following the scientific method by conducting a series of experiments with an Aedes aegypti lab colony to measure the subject preferences and evaluate concepts.
Final evaluation tests were made to determine its efficiency, where the trap got results of:
► 90.5% catching rate
► 100% retention rate
Meets the required biosafety standards & optimize the surveillance process.
