A good question, but I don't know the answer. I do not know if this type of trap could work on these mosquitoes, but it would be worth looking at and testing as a development. It works on midges in areas near the traps in Scotland.
If a smell could be found that attracted the infected mosquitoes to the trap and did not attract the GM ones, that would be a real winner!
