Abstract

FORATTINI, Oswaldo Paulo  and  BRITO, Marylene de. Household water reservoirs and control of Aedes aegypti. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 2003, vol.37, n.5, pp. 676-677. ISSN 0034-8910.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89102003000500021.

Water reservoirs for domestic use are important sites for the development of Aedes aegypti. In poor areas, these reservoirs are often located outdoors upon flat rooftops. In modern architecture buildings, however, the same is seen even in high-class condominiums. Special attention should be given to these modern architectural constructions during entomological surveillance.
