Sampling processes were included in an entomological survey which was conducted in urban and rural settings of Southern Taiwan. The objective of the survey was to assess for distinct predictors (location, season, and function) of Ae. aegypti juveniles (1st - 4th instar larvae and pupae) and pupae numbers, respectively, in water holding containers found in residential and non-residential areas, 2013 - 2015.
