Abstract

Aedes albopictus was first identified in southern France in 2004, inducing an emerging risk for autochthonous transmission around imported cases of dengue or chikungunya, and also for mosquito-borne nosocomial transmission in hospitals. Aedes albopictus has been present in Marseille since September 2009 and in Aix-en-Provence since August 2010. Because of the possible admission of viremic patients with dengue or chikungunya in the hospitals of these cities, a mosquito survey was conducted in 2011 in 2 of the hospitals, with the use of mosquito traps. Aedes albopictus was detected with Eisenhans II™ traps and egg traps in both hospitals during the warm season.
