Abstract

Arboviruses (viruses spread by arthropod vectors like mosquitoes and ticks) represent a significant burden to public health and agriculture. In most cases, vector control is the only effective measure to stop the spread of these pathogens. We present a novel approach to field-based detection of mosquito-borne viruses, using a device called the "Smart Trap" which automates all steps of a sugarbased surveillance assay, providing daily reports from a network of bait stations placed in the field.
