Abstract: This study aims were to assess the genera and number of the mosquitoes collected from rice paddy fields and animal farms in Badung and Tabanan regencies, in Bali, Indonesia. A total of eight mosquito light traps were set in the sampling areas. Only the adult female mosquitoes trapped were identified and counted in this study. The results demonstrated that four mosquito genera were found, such as Culex spp., Anopheles spp., Aedes spp., and Armigeres spp. The Culex spp. was the highest number of the mosquito trapped with total 2899 collected along the study period. Then, it was followed by Anopheles spp., Aedes spp. with 1954 and 1229 mosquitoes collected respectively. The lowest number mosquito found was Armigeres spp. with 612 mosquitoes collected along the twelve weeks collection. A significant higher number of mosquitoes Anopheles spp., Aedes spp., and Armigeres spp. collected from paddy fields found in comparison with the number of the same mosquitoes collected from animal farms in Badung regency. However, more significant number of mosquitoes Culex spp., Anopheles spp., and Aedes spp. collected from animal farms found compared to the mosquitoes collected from paddy fields in Tabanan regency.
