A model with six mutually exclusive compartments related to dengue is studied. Three vector control tools are considered: insecticides (larvicide and adulticide) and mechanical control. The basic reproduction number associated to the model is presented. The problem is studied using an optimal control approach. The human data are based on the dengue outbreak that occurred in Cape Verde. Control measures are simulated in different scenarios and their consequences analysed.
