Breeding of mosquitoes in urban areas of city DeharaDun

Breeding of mosquitoes in urban areas of city DeharaDun

Uttar Pradesh Journal of Zoology 15(2): 100-102

The present investigation reveals the composition of mosquitoes with respect to type of breeding habitat in urban areas viz. tree hole, flower vase, burrow pit, underground and overhead tanks, drain and domestic containers of Doon-Valley. In this study a total of 8 species of mosquitoes were collected from all the breeding places. Culex quinquefasciatus and Anopheles subpictus have been found to breed in all the selected habitats. the drains supported the breeding of all the 8 species of mosquitoes. In tree holes, the breeding of Cu. quinquefasciatus, Aedes aegypti and An. subpictus was recorded. The underground tanks supported breeding of An. stephensi, An. maculatus, An. annularis, An. culicifacies, An. subpictus and An. aconitus.
