A trap-by-trap confirmation of the model performance. (a) C. tarsalis and (b) C. pipiens. The data for the two stations with largest numbers of mosquitoes observed is presented, along with data from a station in the other main region of concern. For C. pipiens, for which b (1) and b (2) traps are enough warm to support mosquitoes in the beginning of January, the initial conditions of the model result in 30 mosquitoes appearing near Julian day 1.
