Efektivitas Atraktan terhadap Daya Tetas dan Jumlah Telur Nyamuk Aedes albopictus di Laboratorium
Abstract. Aedes albopictus can act as a primary or secondary vector of dengue hemorrhagic fever and
chikungunya. Its population needs to be controlled. One of the environmentally-friendly control methods is
the use of ovitrap. Ovitrap will be more optimal if it added by attractant substances from easily obtained
ingredients in the surrounding environment. This study aims to determine the effectiveness of attractants in
the form of water-soaked paddy (Oryza sativa), cogongrass (Imperata cylindrica) and Indian goosegrass
(Eleusine indica). An experimental study with a completely randomized design (CRD) was carried out at the
Entomology Laboratory of Balai Litbangkes Tanah Bumbu in January - April 2018. The population of this
study is the 10th filial of Ae. albopictus laboratory colonization and gravid female mosquito as samples.
Material combination in the study was paddy straw soaking water (ARJP), Indian goosegrass immersion
water, cogongrass soaking water, Ae albopictus used eggs laying water (ABT), and distilled water as control
(K). Repetition was done five times. Effectiveness of attractants analyzed by ANOVA and LSD tests. Data
normality tested by Kolmogorov-Smirnov test, if it was not fulfilled, the Kruskal Wallis test was used. The
results showed that the use of attractants of water-soaked paddy, Indian goosegrass and cogongrass proved
to have a different effect on the number of Aedes albopictus mosquito eggs compared to aquades and eggs
laying water, but there was no influence between the three types of attractants.
