Laure Oster a technician for Clarke, sets a Gravid trap filled with fermented water mixture to attract female Culex mosquitos near Seminary Park in Crystal Lake. Attracted by the mix, female mosquitos attempt to land on the water surface to lay their eggs, then drawn into the collection chamber and trapped. The Culex mosquitos are then tested for the West Nile virus.
