The optimization of the Barrier Screen

A series of experiments optimising the barrier screen as a method for sampling mosquitoes were conducted at YAPS (Young Animal Protection Society), Cairns, Australia. This work commenced on 08/03/2016 and was completed on 18/02/2018. The data from the entire set of experiments has been archived into one database. Each experiment can be quickly identified using the “ProjectID” which runs from YAPS1 to YAPS4.

The full methodology is available in the Open Access publication from the Related Publications link below.
