Aedes-borne arboviruses have emerged as an important public health problem throughout the world where Aedes spp. are the vectors responsible for this disease. This study was conducted to identify the material types of breeding containers of Aedes spp. larvae as one of the baseline data for Kuta Alam SubDistrict and to suggest suitable Aedes prevention and control strategies. Larvae were identified morphologically and larval indices were also calculated. A total of 2436 containers out of 14 types of containers observed during study periods. The positive breeding containers were surveyed and classified into indoors and outdoors environments. The material of positive breeding container types found was classified into six categories; cement, ceramic, plastic, metal, rubber and glass. As many as 450 of the 2436 potential containers included in the survey, half of the positive containers are cement and plastic materials which represent 80% of the total both in rural and urban areas, indoors and outdoors environment. It was followed by ceramic (15%), metal (3%) and rubber (1%). Aedes spp. larvae were most abundant in cement and plastic material. Therefore, community mobilization towards eliminating human-made containers, either indoor or outdoor, is vital for the dengue control program.
Key words: Aedes spp / arbovirus / dengue / material type
