Animal feed pellets containing lupin seed or alfalfa were added to ovitraps set in Cairns, Australia. Although they collected fewer Aedes eggs than Centers for Disease Control enhanced ovitraps, they did outperform tap water alone. A wooden tongue depressor collected comparable number of Aedes eggs as a Masonite board and seed germination paper.
