Data from: Discovery and exploitation of a natural ecological trap for a mosquito disease vector

Allison M. Gardner, Ephantus J. Muturi & Brian F. Allan
Ecological traps occur due to a mismatch between a habitat’s attractiveness and quality, wherein organisms show preference for low-quality habitats over other available high-quality habitats. Our previous research identified leaf litter from common blackberry (Rubus allegheniensis) as a natural ecological trap for an important vector for West Nile virus (Culex pipiens), attracting mosquitoes to oviposit in habitats deleterious to the survival of their larvae. Here we demonstrate that manipulation of leaf litter in stormwater catch...
