Abstract

Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF) is a disease caused by the dengue virus and can be transmitted through the vector mosquitoes Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus. The addition of attractants to ovitrap can be used as a prevention of diseases caused by mosquitoes Aedes sp. The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of various types of attractants against the number of Aedes sp. trapped on the ovitrap. This type of research is a quasi-experiment with Anova statistical test. The sample used was 300 mosquitoes Aedes sp. The research was conducted with three repetitions of treatment and three observations with a 24-hour timeframe for each observation. The attractants used in this study were plantain peel extract, brown sugar fermentation, straw soaked water and plain water as a control. The results showed that the highest number of mosquitoes trapped in the attractants of plantain peel extract, brown sugar fermentation, and straw soaked water was four, nine, and 21, respectively. Statistically, it can be concluded that the straw soaked water attractant is the most effective attractant (p-value = 0.001) because it caused more mosquitoes to be trapped in each repetition in the ovitrap. This can be a safer alternative attractant for the environment and human health to control the mosquito Aedes.sp vector.
