Methods for dissecting arthropod vectors to determine infection rates
In entomological surveys after man-biting insects have been collected and identified it is often important to determine whether they are disease vectors; for example, whether anopheline mosquitoes caught feeding on man are vectors of malaria or filariasis, and if so the infective proportion.
