Bionomics:
In association with man, aegypti will use any and all natural and artifical containers. Away from urban areas the species tends to favor pools in river beds, tree stumps, tree holes and natural containers. Females are primarily day biters and readily enter buildings to feed. They have also been taken in lesser numbers at night (Christophers 1960).

Medical Importance:
Primary vector of dengue and yellow fever (Christophers 1960).
