Data recorded under subject headings include: Catch number; Date; Time started; Locality; Number of catchers; Bait hours; Hours LMT (includes hours of the day); Weather. Records capture the time of; the total number of species caught and weather conditions per catch from each platform level.
The catch records describe 24 hour mosquito catches taken from around Bwamba, Uganda. Catches made starting from ground level platforms and above. Fifteen catchers were used as bait. The catch environmental conditions are recorded including the vegetation, distances from banana plantations and structures.
