Abstract: Dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) is a major public health problem in Indonesia. The main dengue control is the cutting of transmission chain by controlling the vector. The vector observation of Aedes aegypti is important to know regardling to spread, density, main habitat and risk transmission of larvae. We conducted the study of the analysis of indicators of entomology Ae. aegypti in endemic areas of dengue fever in Padang, West Sumatra, Indonesia from July to December 2016. This study aimed to determine the density of larvae analysis and Maya Index (House Index / HI, Breteau Index / BI, Container Index / CI) and Maya Index / MI in Padang. Some 100 houses in every village were used as the sample survey of larvae in accordance with WHO. Larva of Ae. aegypti was observed by visual and single larva method. Totally, a hundred houses surveyed in six districts were founded HI 9% - 49%, BI 9% - 102%, CI 1.2% - 26.1% DF 2- 6, MI all villages surveyed low- being, as a result, it can be concluded that the density of Ae. aegypti larvae in Padang was medium-high and medium-low Maya Index.
