Abstract

Training for society independent activity has been carried out recently to culture B. thuringiensis H14 local strain in the coconut media. This study was done for the purpose of Anopheles control in Klaces Village, Kampung Laut involving 30 participants. It focused on the culturing process of B. thuringiensis H-14 local strain in the coconut media and its application. The collection result of bacterial culture was then spread to surrounding local pools containing some mosquito larvae. Check list evaluation was applied continually for six times period, with two weeks interval. The result showed that most of the participants (>80%) were able to do the nine elements perfectly in order. Ninety percent of them were able to prepare the coconut independently and practiced the inoculation of B. thuringiensis H-14 local strain on the coconut media correctly (96,675%). In addition, they could also maintain the main equipments required for the culturing process (100%). Meanwhile, a decrease in density of Anopheles sp (80 100%) after one day culturing of B. thuringiensis H-14 local strain on the coconut media was observed. It is concluded that the results encourage the society to culture B. thuringiensis H-14 local strain in the coconut media independently in order to control Anopheles sp larvae. Further studies are still needed particularly those related with the cost benefit and cost effectiveness
