Ovitrap Modification with Cypermethrin Insecticide and Bagasse Attractants as Aedes Aegypti Musquito Trap

Nurhaidah | AT Diana Nerawati

Abstract: Vector control to decrease the accident of DHF have been done but the results still not maximal. By these study, we can use another way to control Aedes aegypti population. Bagasse contain organic matter which is fermented will produce amonium and CO2 which influence the olfactory nerve of Aedes aegypti. The type of this study was true experimental post test only control group design. Object of this study was ovitrap which is already modified by using insecticide and bagasse as attractant to attract and kill Aedes aegypti mosquito. The results of this study showed that the number of dead mosquito in net are increasing as the cypermethrin concentration increase during 24 hours, 48 hours, and 72 hours of observation using concentration 2.5 % 56, 5 % 78, 7.5 %94 and 10 %124. From the results we can conclude that there was a difference of the number of dead mosquitos in net using different cypermethrin and bagasse attractants concentration (p>a). The best concentration of cypermethrin to be used was 10 % for 3 days. We recommend to use 5 % and 2, 5 % concentration. The longer the exposure (24 hours, 48 hours and 72 hours) the more the number of dead mosquitoes. Further study can be developed by extend the observation period until 7 days and also increase the size of ovitrap to increase their efficiency and effectivity.
