Mosquito Collection (Bulk Unidentified) (NEON-MOSC-BU)

SAMPLES ARE CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE. Please contact the NEON Biorepository for information about when these samples will become available. This collection contains vials of unidentified mosquitoes stored in bulk (not pathogen tested) from CO2 trapping at terrestrial sites (NEON sample class: mos_trapping_in.sampleID). When adult mosquitoes are active, sampling occurs (via CDC light traps) every two weeks at core sites and every four weeks at relocatable sites. A sampling bout consists of two trapping nights and the intervening day for up to ten plots per site. Vials containing unidentified mosquitoes are archived in 10 mL cryovials in liquid nitrogen. See related links below for protocols and NEON related data products.
