Abstract Content

Aedes albopictus is also known as Asian tiger mosquito, an invasive mosquito that can be found in the temperate and tropical. The spread of this mosquito in the last three decades was caused by human activities. The aims of this study were (1) to described the density of Ae. albopictus and (2) to  described the behavior of Ae. albopictus  in Binong village, Tangerang  District Indonesia. This study was conducted in Binong Village, Tangerang  District, Indonesia for six months, from 06.00 AM  to 06.00 PM   with Human Landing Collection (HLC) and Resting Collection (RC) methods outside the house. The density of mosquitoes captured was calculated as Landing Rate (LR), Man Biting Rate (MBR), and Resting Rate (RR). The results of the study about 77.75%  Ae. albopictus found outside the house  (Man Biting rate 18.87) and 59.26% were found resting outdoors (Resting rate 1). Our results showed the highest capture time of Ae. albopictus outside the house at 08.00-08.20 AM and 04.00- 04.20 PM. This study described that Ae. Albopictus in Binong Village were exophagic and exophilic.
