Abstract

A survey on the occurrence of mosquito in Kuruva Island was made and their vectorial status was analyzed. This study was undertaken for six months from October 2010 to March 2011. Mosquito larvae were collected throughout the island and were later identified in the laboratory using systematic keys. A total of 18 mosquito species belonging to 5 genera, Anopheles, Aedes, Culex, Mansonia and Armigeres were identified. The habitat preference and vectorial capacity of these mosquito species were discussed.
