Effect of the Use Lethal Ovitrap to Population Aedes sp

Tri Ramadhani, Bondan Fajar Wahyudi


Dengue vector control has been done in various ways, however, has not been able to obtain optimal results. Ovirap use to determine the presence of Aedes sp in a region is often done, but the application of lethal ovitrap for population control Aedes sp still rarely done. This study was aimed to assess the effect of LO applications on populations of Aedes sp.

This research includes quasi experimental design with a pretest-posttest control group without randomization. Research sites in dengue in endemic areas in Banyumas district, with a total sample of 100 homes in each treatment and control areas. Insecticides used on ovistrip is cypermethrin at a dose of 12.5 mg ai/strip. Populations of Aedes sp measured each week for three weeks prior to the intervention and twelve weeks during the intervention. The mean density of Aedes sp compared before and after intervention and between treatment and control areas.
The study showed the difference of mosquito densities before and after the intervention in the experimental group was 0,07 ( p-value 0.044), whereas the control group was 0.037 (p-value 0.341). LO use with the addition of insecticide active ingredient cypermetrin on ovistrip impact on the decline density of Aedes sp.
