in containers found in home surroundings aedes fluviatilis, anopheles albitarsis, anopheles argyritarsis, anopheles evansae, anopheles strodei, culex bahamensis, culex bigoti, culex coronator, culex eduardoi, culex mollis, culex quinquefasciatus, culex sp., limatus durhamii and psorophora cingulata larvae were collected. the most densely colonized containers were water tanks, cement trough and tyres. among the most frequent species a meaningful population variation to culex quinquefasciatus and aedes fluviatilis, the firstl being more frequent during the spring and the second during the summer. anopheles albitarsis, anopheles evansae, anopheles strodei, culex bahamensis e culex sp. were only collected in large- sizer cement containers. the other species did not show any particular preferences.
