Abstract

Aedes albopictus check for this species in other resources was found in six of the 10 departments of Haiti and in 14 of the 35 communes surveyed. The survey found the larvae of Ae. albopictus in 13 different types of containers. Used tires and tins were by far the most common breeding sites used by this mosquito species. At the breeding sites, Ae. albopictus was associated with other mosquito species, such as Aedes aegypti check for this species in other resources , Culex nigripalpus check for this species in other resources and Aedes mediovittatus check for this species in other resources . The highest proportion of association was with Ae. aegypti. This study represents the first report of Ae. albopictus in Haiti.
