Abstract

Maros Regency is an endemic area for dengue fever. Vector control was used by Malathion and cypermethrin. Continuous use of insecticides
can cause resistance. This study aims to determine the resistance status of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes to the insecticides Malathion and
cypermethrin. This type of research is experimental research with a descriptive approach. The sample of this study was 400 female Aedes
aegypti mosquitoes with four treatments, 25 in one treatment. The Aedes aegypti mosquito test results against malathion insecticide were
0.8% after 60 minutes of exposure; the average mortality rate is 53%. After 24 hours, about 93% and the test results using 0.05%
Cypermethrin insecticide resulted in 100% death within 20 minutes. In conclusion, Malathion insecticide in Maros Regency is included in
the medium resistant category, and 0.05% Cypermethrin insecticide is included in the vulnerable category according to Permenkes No.50 of
2017, so it is recommended to continue using insecticides made from cypermethrin and the Jumantik group.
