Abstract

This study aims to determine the factors associated with the presence of Aedes aegypti larvae in endemic

and nonendemic areas of DHF in Biringkanaya District. The type of research used was observational with

cross sectional design and through direct observation. The population is all houses in the Village of Pai and

Kelurahan Daya. Determination of the sample was carried out by proportional simple random sampling

method in order to obtain a sample of 100 houses each. Data analysis was carried out was univariate and

bivariate with chi square test. The results showed that the related variables were the actions of PSN in

endemic areas (p = 0.025), water temperature (p = 0.000), house humidity (p = 0.000), container conditions

(p = 0.000) in endemic areas and (p = 0.002) in nonendemic areas. Unrelated variables are knowledge (p =

0.141) in endemic areas and (p = 0.824) in nonendemic areas. The conclusion of this study is that there is

a relationship between PSN action, water temperature, house humidity, and container conditions with the

presence of larvae in endemic areas, but there is no relationship between respondents’ knowledge in the two

regions and the actions of PSN in nonendemis areas.
