Abstract
Subsequent to the detection of Aedes (Finlaya) japonicus japonicus (Theo- bald) on the island of Hawaii, a survey was conducted over the span of twelve months from June 2005 until June 2006, to determine its distribution and abundance on the island. Ae. j. japonicus was the third most abundant species encountered employing gravid traps and the fourth most abundant using New Jersey light traps in the districts surveyed. In addition, gravid mosquito traps which used a bait of infused leaf detwere more effective at catching Ae. j. japonicus than New Jersey light traps.
