Alexandre de Araujo Oliveira, Marise Maleck

Abstract


Aedes aegypti (Linnaeus) e Aedes albopictus (Skuse) são vetores de diversas arboviroses entre elas a febre amarela urbana e a dengue, sendo a última um dos maiores problemas no mundo em cidades que possuem clima quente e úmido. Diante dos consecutivos casos de dengue em Vassouras-RJ foi importante averiguar a presença e comportamento do vetor nas diversas épocas do ano e sua predominância no município. Neste estudo observou-se a presença de Ae. aegypti em 10,44% e Ae. albopictus em 89,56% dos 364 ovos que se tornaram viáveis, e sendo o bairro Matadouro, ponto 4, local com maior presença destes culicídeos. Estes dados mostraram que Ae. albopictus está cada vez mais presente na área urbana.
