The purpose of this paper is to show that the mosquito trap has great potential value in research work through the capture for the laboratory of the various kinds of insects that are implicated in the transmission of diseases as well as in the control of malaria through the capture of a large percentage of the that are attracted to populated centers.

I believe that a screened dwelling in a mosquito infested area is not complete unless a mosquito trapping arrangement is included, as a trapless dwelling can become, in itself, a dangerous trap.

I wish to explain what a mosquito trap is, its origin, and how it functions but first I will pass briefly over the history of other so-called mosquito traps. I have traced the term mosquito trap back to the year 1902, when it was first mentioned by Sir Ronald Ross in his book entitled “Mosquito Brigades and How To Organize Them.”
