Abstract


This project was developed to enhance surveillance for Aedes spp. mosquitoes in an Arizona border county. The county mantained 11 trapping sites and we enrolled community members to help as a citizen science effort, adding over 40 trapping sites to the project. We aim to determine presence, absence, distribution and seasonality of the vector by using ovitraps that are well-distributed in the community.
