Technical Abstract: Mosquito surveillance is a prerequisite to an effective, efficient, and environmentally sound mosquito control program. Surveillance data is used to define the nature and extent of the mosquito problem, gauge the effectiveness of daily mosquito control operations, comply with State laws and regulations regarding the justification for treatments, and serve as a basis for evaluating the potential for transmission of mosquito-borne diseases. Commonly used methods to inventory mosquito habitats, collect immature and adult mosquitoes, and monitor environmental parameters that can be used to predict mosquito emergences are reviewed.
