Abstract

The presence of the Asian tiger mosquito Aedes (Stegomyia) albopictus (Skuse, 1894) in a given region is a major problem, because this mosquito is known for its nuisance and transmission of infectious diseases. In Algeria, this species was first detected in Tizi-Ouzou in 2010 and again in 2014 in rural areas. After this, no study has reported its presence and no complaints about its nuisance were reported in this region. A monitoring of the presence of Ae. albopictus in the city of Tizi-Ouzou was carried out for three years. In 2021 we found adults belonging to this mosquito. In the present work we report this first detection in the city of Tizi-Ouzou, this appearance shows its strong capacity to colonise new territories.
