  • Description:
    Dengue viruses cause hundreds of millions of infections every year in tropical and subtropical countries. Unfortunately, there is not a single universal vector control method capable of suppressing Aedes aegypti (L.) populations. Amongst novel control tools or approaches are various types of traps targeting gravid females or their eggs. Here, we provide details of the operational use of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention autocidal gravid ovitrap (CDC-AGO trap) for the surveillance and control of Ae. aegypti. Adult mosquitoes were monitored every week in 2 isolated neighborhoods treated with 3 AGO traps per house in 85% of houses and in 2 reference neighborhoods without control traps. Between March 2013 and April 2015 we serviced the AGO traps 14 times in each community (every 2 months). Common trap problems were absent or broken trap tops (1-1.5%), flooded (0.1-0.7%) or dry (0.5-1.3%) traps, and missing (0.3-0.8%) or vandalized (0.5-1.4%) traps. Most traps kept a volume of infusion between 45% and 97% of their original volume (10 liters). Nontarget organisms captured in AGO traps were mostly small flies, and to a lesser extent ants, cockroaches, grasshoppers, butterflies, dragonflies, and lizards. Trap coverage ranged between 83% and 87% of houses in both communities throughout the study. We interpret such high levels of trap retention over time as an expression of acceptance by the community.
