We would like to thank Eliminate Dengue Cairns, particularly field officer Angela Caird, for assistance with ovitrap deployment. We thank the Cairns householders participating in the study for granting permission to deploy ovitraps on their property, as well as Scott Ritchie and Christopher Paton from the Centre for Biosecurity in Tropical Infectious Diseases, James Cook University, for assisting with the processing of field collections. The National Health and Medical Research Council provided funding for this research through a Programme grant and Fellowship grant to A.A. Hoffmann.
