Abstract: Proliferation of mosquitoes were greatly influenced by the monsoon rains and the irrigtion practices among the agrorural settlements of surrounding villages in the Samanar hills of Madurai.

Predominant abundance of Cx. quinquefasciatus Cx. tritaeniorhynchus, Anopheles hyrcanus groups, Ae. aegypti, Ae. albopictus and Ar. subalbatus were observed. On the other hand species abundance and diversity peaked during the monsoon rains and paddy cultivating months ranging from September 2006 to January 2007 than during the summer or winter months. Henceforth monsoon oriented agricultural practices enhances the proliferation of vector mosquito and their density.
