Background & objectives: Dengue fever {DF) is a major vector-borne disease in Malaysia. The incidences of DF in Malaysia are caused by viruses transmitted through the bites of infected female Aedes albopictus and Ae.aegypti
mosquitoes. This study aims to establish the physicochemical characteristics breeding of mosquito in colleges at Uitm Shah Alam.
Methods: Natural and man-made breeding media in UiTM Shah Alam were surveyed for the presence of mosquito larvae. The physicochemical characteristics of breeding water such as pH, conductivity, total dissolved solids,
turbidity, dissolved oxygen and chemical properties in media were measured with suitable.
Results: Through data obtained through test on physicochemical breeding media, available physical and chemical factors affecting reproduction and distribution of the number of dengue cases at the UiTM Shah Alam. Significant differences can be shown through data T-Test and one way ANOVA to comparing the physicochemical properties of high dengue cases and low dengue cases area.
Conclusions: The existent different of physicochemical characteristics between high dengue cases and low dengue cases, thus we can give priority for prevent and control
