ABSTRACT

Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF) is still being health problem in Semarang City.  DHF is transmitted by Aedes aegypti as vector infected dengue virus.  The vector only live and breed in the clean water.  Household often drain their container containing larvae of Aedes sp to their sewage water.  This research aimed to analyze the difference of the longevity of Aedes aegypti larva in difference pH of the domestic sewage water.This study was an experimental research using  post only control group design approach. The subject was Aedes aegypti  instar III which was breed in entomology laboratory. The sewage measured based on pH index. Data analysis using the Kruskal wallis test and followed by Mann whitney test.The result showed that Aedes aegypti larva could survive and breed as mosquitos in the domestic sewage water. The data analysis result showed that there were significant  differences between the number of larva which become pupa (p=0.002), pupa to imago (p=0.001) and the number of imago which survived  until the second week (p<0.001) in the domestic waste water  with various pH.  Ae. aegypti can survive in domestic sewage water. Need socialization about PSN program which is not only done in the clear water area but also on the domestic waste water.
