Design Characteristics

The CDC UpDraft Blacklight (UV) Trap Model 1312 was developed from a design of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. The trap includes a blacklight tube support and ballast which runs at 12 volts. In field tests in Central America it caught several times more Anopheline mosquitoes than did standard CDC Miniature or New Jersey light traps.

The light on this trap can be controlled with the optionally available PhotoSwitch (LCS-2). When configured with a switch, it is possible to collect for 2 or 3 nights with only one trip to the trap.

BlackLight (UV)

The utility of blacklight (UV) in attracting a greater number and diversity of mosquito species,Culicoides, and Phlebotomines is well known. Our UV traps employ a 4 Watt blue-blacklight tube and a very efficient transistorized inverter-ballast to provide radiation in the near-UV range (ca. 320-420 nm). The special inverter ballast is able to start the 4-Wt blue blacklight tube at battery voltages a low as 9.5 VDC. The blacklight system is identical to the one used in the CDC Fay-Prince Model 812 and Downdraft Blacklight (UV) Model 912 traps.
