Ritchie and Johnson (1991a,b) used a 10-cm diameter golf-core sampler to take 10-cm deep soil cores in mangrove forests to study the distribution of Ochlerotatus taeniorhynchus eggs. Soil samples were soaked in water for at least 3 days to allow newly oviposited eggs to mature, after which the core samples were flooded with dilute yeast solutions to promote hatching. In other surveys Ritchie and Addison (1991) collected soil samples from mangrove forests with modified 6- and 60-ml plastic syringes.
