Author: Elnour, Maha Abd Elghafar Abd Elrahim
Abstract: This study was conducted at the Blue Nile State to determine the species of mosquitoes prevailing there. The survey included the six localities of the state. The survey was carried out during the period April-August 2011. For collection of the material, the methods adopted by the World Health Organization were used: standard dipping method for larvae and pyrethrem knock – down spraying for adults. Adults were also obtained through rearing lower stages. The results obtained showed that three species were available at the B. N. State namely, Anopheles arabiensis, An. funestus and An. dethali. The total number of Anopheline larvae identified was 2517. The percentages of larvae were 96.53%, 3.46% and o.o4% respectively. Only one larva of An. dethali was captured. The highest mean density of larvae was recorded from EL Damazin locality (88.5) followed by Gessan locality (75.5). Percentages of pyrethrem knocked down mosquitoes were 95.82% (Anopheles arabiensis) 4.18% (An. funestus). No adult of An. dethali was caught. The dominant breeding habitats of mosquitoes were rain pools followed by leaking water from the pipes of the network of EL Damazin
