Abstract

During the summer of 2001, field studies were performed to evaluate the effects of carbon dioxide (CO2) and 1-octen-3-ol (octenol) on the ability to collect Aedes albopictus with Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Fay-Prince traps. Results from these studies indicated that Ae. albopictus is significantly more attracted to CO2- or CO2 + octenol-baited CDC Fay-Prince traps than unbaited or octenol-baited traps. However, the difference between the responses to CO2 and CO 2 + octenol was not statistically different, indicating that CO 2 is driving the response of Ae. albopictus to CDC Fay-Prince traps.
