GAMA, Renata Antonaci et al. Evaluation of the HP trap baited with different release rates of octenol for capturing anophelines (Diptera: Culicidae) in Brejo do Mutambal, municipality of Varzelândia, State of Minas Gerais. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2007, vol.40, n.4, pp. 408-410. ISSN 0037-8682. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0037-86822007000400007.
To evaluate the role of octenol in collecting anophelines, HP traps baited with different rates of evaporation. A total of 285 anophelines was captured and there was no significant difference in the numbers of anophelines captured between the control traps and the traps baited with octenol and no difference between the release rates.
