During 1983-88 Aedes aegypti were collected using larval surveys and ovitraps in Tobago, W.I. The main artificial containers used by Ae. aegypti were drums (35.4%) and small miscellaneous containers (23.4%). From a total of 15,600 ovitraps exposed, 183 ovitraps (1.3%) were positive, with 25 containing Ae. aegypti eggs and 158 with Haemagogus equinus eggs. No Aedes albopictus eggs were detected in Tobago during this study.
