Abstract

Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever (DHF) is a major public health problem in Indonesia and can lead to epidemics. Ae.aegypti mosquitoes is very important in the transmission of this disease. One way of controlling the population of Ae. aegypti mosquitoes was done by using appropriate technology (TTG) larvitrap. This study was aimed to determine the preference and effectiveness of larvitrap TTG against Ae. aegypti. The research was conducted in Plumbon Pulo Village, Indramayu District, Indramayu Regency, West Java Province with experimental design at population level (community). The sample size was 546 larvitrap. Preferences test results showed that 72.0% of larvitrap TTG successfully trapped Ae aegypti larvae. The color and placement height do not affect the effectiveness of the larvitrap TTG. The straw water soaking media (polluted water) was the most preferred medium for Ae. Aegypti as a breeding habitat compared to other aquatic media. It can be concluded that the larvitrap TTG is suitable for Ae. aegypti habitat. so it can be used as an alternative to effective mosquito larvae control.
