integrated vector management zones - Caguas City PR

A citywide integrated vector management effort led by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2016 and 2017 in Caguas City, Puerto Rico, was rolled out across eight sectors of the city, one at a time, aimed at decreasing the Aedes aegypti mosquito population. The eight zones divided the city so that each one had a similar number of buildings, and 360 stationary surveillance traps (yellow dots) were sampled every week during the period of study, from October 2016 to August 2017.(Image originally published in Barrera et al 2019, Journal of Medical Entomology)
