Abstract

Lethal ovitrap is a new alternative in dengue vector control (Aedes spp.) that needs to be socialized to the public. A study of community knowledge and attitudes towards the use of lethal ovitrap as a vector control tool is required as initial data before field application. The purpose of the study was to describe the knowledge and attitudes of the community towards the use of lethal ovitrap before it was applied in the field. An analytical description study with a cross sectional design was conducted in Pulutan Village, Salatiga City. A total of 107 respondents were taken by proportional random sampling to be interviewed. The results showed that 54.30% of respondents had low knowledge and 57.05% of respondents had a less supportive attitude towards the application of lethal ovitrap. In general, the knowledge and attitude of the community towards lethal ovitrap as a vector control tool is still low. Knowledge and gender variables were shown to be significantly related to the supportive attitude given by the community to the application of lethal ovitrap. Education about lethal ovitrap needs to be done before installing lethal ovitrap in the community.
