Objective: The current study was aimed to study the use of electronic racket in malaria vector collection. Methodology: Four bedrooms were selected for adult mosquito collection in the morning in July 2019 during the rainy season in Dogbo district. Mosquitoes resting in the houses were collected by electronic racket from 6 a.m. to 7 a.m. The survey was done for fourteen consecutive nights (two weeks). All collected mosquitoes were put in netted plastic cups and transferred to the Laboratory for identification. Results: The results show that many mosquito species were present in Dogbo district mainly Anopheles gambiae, Culex quinquefasciatus, Aedes aegypti and Mansonia Africana. There are many advantages in the use of electronic racket for the morning collection of mosquito resting in the human houses.
