Abstract Content
This study reported on Aedes mosquito distribution based on the ovitraps index together with number of mean Aedes larvae collected per recovered ovitraps. The ovitrapping activities were carried out in 15 pre-selected dengue endemic localities between February to May 2018. A total of 60 ovitraps were placed in each selected study site. The ovitraps were placed in selected localities for 4 or 5 days, and then were brought to the laboratory for species identification. The Aedes larvae collected were pool according to species and locality. Later, were breed for use in insecticide susceptibility test. The ovitrap index indicated that both Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus were found high in all dengue endemic areas.  The indoor ovitrap index for Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus ranging from 4% to 47% and 4% to 53%, respectively. Whilst, the outdoor ovitrap index for Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus ranging from 13% to 29% and 17% to 67%, respectivelyMean value for indoor larvae of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus is from 0 – 21, while the mean value for outdoor larvae of these 2 species ranging from 0 – 26.  This study showed that ovitrapping methods is a reliable method to suit the purpose either for Aedes surveillance or use as a devise to collect Aedes sample. It was significantly known to catch Aedes even at low infestation.
