Description: Caption:
This historic 1965 image, depicted former Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) arbovirologist and entomologist, Dr. William Daniel “Dan” Sudia, as he was in the process of preparing a block of dry ice, which would be used to attract mosquitoes to mosquito traps, during an arbovirus study. See PHIL 5599, for another view of this process underway. Blocks of dry ice, i.e., solid carbon dioxide, are added as bait for mosquitoes to help capture them inside CDC light traps. Padded blocks of dry ice attract mosquitoes, while the trap’s built-in fan, draws the mosquitoes into the collection net.
