Abstract:

This study offers another approach, namely the installation of long-term insecticidetreated bed nets in cattle sheds to accelerate the decline in the number of mosquitoes instead of using conventional spraying. This type of research was used pre-experiment with one group pre, and post-test design with analysis before and after the paired t-test was used. The results of the Anopheles mosquito suspected of being a vector are An. maculatus and An. Balabacensis. There was a decrease in mosquitoes caught overall 96.7% and 100% in cattle house. The statistical tests generated P = 0.000 meaning that there are differences in the number of mosquitoes caught between before and after two months installation of insecticide-treated bed nets. The malaria control policy was changed to the installation of insecticide-treated bed nets added to the longevity of livestock.
