Of these, 12 species of Anopheles, 5 species each of Culex and Aedes were main species, in which Anopheles form 48.12%, Culex 22.89% and Aedes 18.85% respectively. Shannon and Evenness index for Anopheles (2.212, 0.839) Culex (1.642, 0.746) and Aedes (1.625. 0.657) during entire study period were obtained. Overall highest Shannon index were 1.9358 during September 2020 and lowest 1.0781 during January 2020.
