Systematic labelling of collection cups and mosquito samples. The cups containing each mosquito collection are labelled clearly and meaningfully to uniquely identify each cup at each experimental time point (e.g., household number, time and trap type) (a) and then placed in a container (b). Mosquitoes are sorted and placed in a tube which is identified uniquely by combining sorting form type, form serial number, form row, body form (to distinguish intact from carcass samples) sample type (to distinguish individuals, batches and pools) and sample identifier (to distinguish distinct samples of a single type) (c). Labelled tubes with samples are then placed inside a storage box along with the SO form (d)
