Diversity of mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) in different habitats of Warangal Urban Environment

G. Suhasini and Ch. Sammaiah

Mosquitoes that inhabit water habitats play an important role in the ecological food chain, and many of them are biters and transmitters of human and animal diseases. Mosquito diversity was studied in three areas of Warangal tri city, viz Warangal, Hanamkonda and Kazipet in indoor and outdoor habitats from February 2012 to January 2014. Seven species belonging to 3 genera were collected and identified as Anopheles culicifacies, Anopheles stephensi Anopheles annularis, Culex quinquefasciatus, Culex tritaeniorhynchus, Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus. Highernumber of mosquitoes were collected outdoor as compared to indoor. The percentage of Anopheles mosquitoes at outdoor was (60.80%) followed by Culex (60.75%) and Aedes (59.33%) and indoor Anopheles (39.20%) followed by Aedes (40.67%) and culex (39.25%) was recorded during 2012-13. At outdoor Anopheles (52.79%) followed by Culex (57.22%) and Aedes (56.06%) and Anopheles (47.21%) followed by Culex (42.78%) and Aedes (43.94%) was recorded during 2013-2014 in indoor. Shannon and Evenness was calculated.
