Abstract

The use of temephos as larvasida in the prevention of the disease dengue fever in Indonesia has already lasted for 40 years. Currently the most widely used larvacide for controlling Aedes sp larvae is 1% temephos. The use of insecticides for a long time for the same targets provides unmatched pressure, which encourages the development of the population of Aedes aegypti to Become more resistant faster. One effort to overcome this problem is to find a more selective and safe biological insecticide. Biological insecticides are interpreted as an insecticide whose basic ingredients come from plants that Contain chemicals (bioactive) that are toxic to insects but are biodegradable in nature, so they do not pollute the environment and are relatively safe for humans, besides biological insecticides are also selective.
