Developed by entomologists at James Cook University in Australia, the collapsible passive trap performs as well as other commonly used mosquito traps but in a lighter, easier-to-carry design, making it an attractive option for mosquito monitoring in remote areas. Researchers tested an all-white version (left) and a blue and white version (middle). The diagram at right show the component parts: (a) inverted trap entry; (b) carbon dioxide distributor; (c) blue GORE-TEX-like fabric; (d) white no-see-um mesh fabric.

How successful is this trap design?
