The aim of this study was to conduct an inventory and characterize the breeding sites of Aedes in the district of Abidjan as well as to estimate the epidemic risk of arboviruses. The entomological prospections were conducted in six communities of Abidjan. It was observed that Aedes aegypti mosquito was most dominant and its breeding predilection sites in each of the surveyed communities consisted of water storage containers. The Stegomyian indices showed a moderate epidemic risk in all communities. Surveillance programs must be developed to prevent and effectively fight against these diseases in the city of Abidjan.
