RESENDE, Marcelo Carvalho de; SILVA, Ivoneide Maria da  e  EIRAS, Álvaro Eduardo. Operational evaluation of a sticky trap in the monitoring of Aedes aegypti. Epidemiol. Serv. Saúde [online]. 2010, vol.19, n.4, pp.329-338. ISSN 1679-4974.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5123/S1679-49742010000400003.

OBJECTIVES: to assess the capacity of health workers to correctly identify mosquitoes captured by MosquiTRAP, and to compare the time spent on larval survey, egg trap (ovitrap) and MosquiTRAP. METHODOLOGY: operational aspects of monitoring of the Aedes aegypti were assessed in twelve municipalities in five geographic regions of Brazil. RESULTS: time spent by health workers to inspect the MosquiTRAP was similar to ovitrap (8.0 and 6.8 minutes, respectively) and both took less than larval survey (24.8 minutes). Health workers identified A. aegypti (minimum of 97.4% hit) and A. albopictus (100% hit) in five of the six municipalities where this species was recorded. MosquiTRAP pendency index in all municipalities varied from 0.20% to 4.43%. CONCLUSION: results indicate that ovitrap and MosquiTRAP have advantages over larval survey in terms of reduced time spent at residences, implying cost reduction.
