Abstract

In October 2002 Aedes aegypti was detected on Grand Cayman after an absence of 5 years. This study outlines the techniques used by the Mosquito Research & Control Unit of the Cayman Islands to monitor the reintroduction of Ae. aegypti and to determine the extent of the new infestation. Suggestions are made for improvements of port disinsection activities to minimize further introductions.
