Abstract

Vector surveillance is a cornerstone of dengue management yet there is a diversity of surveillance programs evident internationally. Such diversity is described in this review to enable a broader assessment of dengue vector surveillance methods. This review describes the diversity of surveillance programs for dengue vectors in several endemic and epidemic countries. Furthermore, strengths and weaknesses of vector surveillance methods, including larval surveys, BG-Sentinel trap, and autocidal and sticky ovitraps, are also discussed. The ability to compare and contrast these programs could contribute to the finding of better methods both locally and nationally and facilitate interregional technology transfer. Health authorities in both endemic and epidemic countries alike could benefit from adopting technologies and practices from other regions.
