Background: fever by hemorrhagic dengue, has an important growth in the last decade, Aedes Aegypti is the main mosquito’s species involved in its transmission. Development: a bibliographic review on the theme where it became evident that integrated entomoepidemiological vigilance is considered by the Pan-American Health Organization/World Health Organization, one of the main priorities in the fight against dengue, always evaluating bionomics modifications that may be represented in the Aedes aegypti, which will make more effective the implementation of ecological strategies as, entomopathogenic bacteria and the use of natural enemies among others. Conclusions: Ae. aegypti has achieved a remarkable dispersion in the world, this leads to important epidemic  outbreaks of the disease in numerous countries and regions. In the control or eradication of the vector is indispensable the community participation, by means of a dynamic, re-elaborate, redesigned process and enriched with important intra and extra-sector participation, with enough flexibility and adaptability, together with a methodology that facilitates the expression of local diversity.
