applications of a sugar-based surveillance system to track arboviruses in wild mosquito populations.effective arbovirus surveillance is essential to ensure the implementation of control strategies, such as mosquito suppression, vaccination, or dissemination of public warnings. traditional strategies employed for arbovirus surveillance, such as detection of virus or virus-specific antibodies in sentinel animals, or detection of virus in hematophagous arthropods, have limitations as an early-warning system. a system was recently developed that involves collecting mosquitoes in co2-baited traps, ...201424359415
