Abstract

We report the collection of Aedes aegypti, Culex quinquefasciatus, Cx. interrogator, Cx. thriambus, Cx. coronator, and Cx. salinarius larvae from storm sewers within an endemic area for dengue transmission in Merida, Mexico, during the rainy season of 2011. This is the first record of the dengue vector Ae. aegypti breeding in storm sewers in the southeast of Mexico.
