If you see any strange looking devices hanging from trees on base, it may just be a mosquito trap set up by the Public Health Office. Public Health routinely traps mosquitos during the summer months to monitor populations and test for diseases they may carry. The trap you’ll most communally see is the CO2 trap. CO2 traps contain dry ice that slowly releases CO2 gas, mimicking normal respiration in humans and other mammals. This attracts the mosquitos, which are then trapped in an attached net. Once trapping is complete, the mosquitoes are sorted and females are shipped out for species identification.
