  1. 1For each species, means in the same row followed by the same letter are not significantly different (Tukey’s multiple comparison test, P = 0.05, on log10(x + 1) transformed catch)
  2. 2Includes species Ae. oceanicus, Ae. samoanus, or Ae. tutuilae
  3. HBC: human bait catch; BGS: BG-Sentinel; CDC: Centers for Disease Control UV-light trap. Traps were baited with CO2 (C), octenol (O), and/or BG-lure (L)
