Free Content The single water‐surface sweep estimation method accurately estimates very low (n = 4) to low–moderate (n = 25–100) and high (n > 100) Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae) pupae numbers in large water containers up to 13 times faster than the exhaustive sweep and total count method and without any sediment contamination

To confirm that a single water‐surface sweep‐net collection coupled with three calibration factors (2.6, 3.0 and 3.5 for 1/3, 2/3 and 3/3 water levels, respectively) (WSCF) could accurately estimate very low to high Aedes aegypti pupae numbers in water containers more rapidly than the exhaustive 5‐sweep and total count (ESTC) method recommended by WHO.
