The city’s Health Department recently pledged to spend twenty-one million dollars to combat Zika and has been hiring more entomologists and lab assistants. It has also acquired new mosquito-hunting swag: mosquito traps designed to target both Aedes albopictus (the Asian Tiger) and Aedes aegypti (Zika) mosquitoes.
The traps are set once a week and emptied after twenty-four hours. The trappers then place the mosquitoes in plastic tubes and put them on dry ice, which kills them. Each trap catches an average of seven mosquitoes per day. Source
