Abstract
Tagetes erecta L. and Jasminum sambac L have active substances as a bioinsecticide against mosquitoes.
This study aimed to analyze the effectiveness of T. erecta and J. sambac in the form of a vaporized pad to kill Aedes
aegypti mosquitoes. This study was an experimental randomized control design with a post-test only control group.
Twenty adult mosquitoes were randomized but selectively chose female mosquitoes aged more than two days. The
flowers formed into fine and rough powder with three doses (0.5 g, 1 g, and 1.5 g) and packed in a small pad heated
using an electrical anti-mosquito vaporizer. The pad was heated using an electrical anti-mosquito vaporizer in the
evaporation chamber and then transferred to the bioassay-test Glass chamber. The mosquitoes were exposed to the
vapor for 20 minutes and then taken into the holding chamber. The number of knockdown mosquitoes after 20 minutes
and mortality number after 24-hour holding were recorded. The results of the T-test analysis showed no difference of
Aedes aegypti mosquito mortality between the fine and rough powder, for both flower T. erecta (p=0.254) and J.
sambac (p=0.677). All doses of flowers showed knockdown effect and mortality affect less than 22%) against Aedes
aegypti. In conclusion, the powder pad of flower Tagetes erecta L. and Jasminum sambac L had a potential knockdown
and mortality effect against Aedes aegypti, though lower than WHO recommendation (90% death). It is necessary to
invent those flowers into other forms to understand a better application to kill Aedes aegypti.

Key words: Flower bioinsecticide, Anti-mosquito pad, Aedes aegypti
