Collection & Processing of Medically Important Arthropods for Arbovirus Isolation.
Sudia, W. Daniel; Chamberlain, Roy W.
The methods given for collecting, preserving, and processing mosquitoes and other archropods for isolation of arboviruses are those used by the National Communicable Disease Center. Techniques of collecting mosquitoes as they bite, using light or bait traps, and from their daytime resting sites are described and illustrated. Details of subsequent storage and processing for virus extraction and identification are included. A short section describes differences in procedure when ticks or mites are collected. (AL)
