Description:This 1973 photograph depicted a New Jersey-type light trap, equipped with a timer that was being used for trapping mosquitoes in Colorado during a field study to determine the presence of vector populations of that region.
The purpose of the trap is to attract adult mosquitoes. Proper placement is 5 – 6 feet off the ground, 50 - 100 feet from competing light, between breeding sites and populated areas, close to mosquito fogging areas, and with a visibility that should be a full 360°.
