Sampling comments: "we collected in four points... They were separated from each other by approximately 200 m, except point 4, which was 800 m from point 1... Adult culicids were collected monthly from May 2003 to April 2004... An aspiration tube was used to collect the adults as they tried to land on the skin of the collector, which was efficient to collect females"
