Abstract

Dengue Fever is a disease caused by the dengue virus and is transmitted by the mosquito Aedes aegypti. The study aims to analyze the effectiveness of larvicide temephos 1% and that the relationship between source reduction 3M (regular cleaning, covering, burying) with larval density. This study was a quasi-experiment. The research was conducted at Paccerakang and Tamalanrea Villages, Makassar City. Samples were taken by the purposive sampling technique with the primary and secondary data. The study results showed that the Larvicid temephos 1% had effectivity to decreasing more larvae density at both villages treated (temephos 1%) areas than those untreated (source reduction) areas. In Pacerakang, the Larva density decrease of House Index (HI) = 25.0% vs 9.4%, Container Index (CI) = 15,6% vs 3.5%, Breteau Index (BI) = 31,3% vs 6.2%. In Tamalanrea, the larva density decrease of HI = 25.0% vs 0.0%; CI = 15.7% vs 1.5%, and BI = 25% vs 3.1%. There was the relationship between the cleaning container (p=0.00 < 0,05), and the covering container (p=0.00 < 0,05), but that was not the burrying discarded container with Aedes aegypti larval densities (p > 0,05). There was the relationship between the container type (p=0.00 < 0,05), the container material (p=0.00 < 0,05), the container water conditions with Aedes aegypti larval densities (p=0.02 < 0,05).
