Effect of bacterial abundance on the density of aedes mosquito larval / Aina Shiffa Mohd Salleh

Mohd Salleh, Aina Shiffa (2017) Effect of bacterial abundance on the density of aedes mosquito larval / Aina Shiffa Mohd Salleh. [Student Project] (Unpublished)


Bacterial communities in Aedes breeding site acts as attractant to gravid female mosquitoes. Hence, this study identify the bacterial abundance and characteristic of the bacteria in water holding container. The objective of the study was to analyze the relationship between the larval density and the bacterial abundance of water holding containers around Puncak Alam, Selangor. Positive container and wet containers are randomly obtained on site and classified according to the criteria. In-situ and ex-situ measurement was done to find the physical and microbiological properties of the water using appropriate equipments. The parameter tested are pH, temperature, turbidity, and bacterial abundance and characterization. Study shows that there are no significant difference between the biological parameters of the breeding containers towards the density of the Aedes mosquito larvae as all result could not achieve the significant value of p<0.05. However, in terms of containers efficiency, rubber material based containers have shown the most promising result to serve as a potential breeding site of Aedes mosquitoes compare to other type of containers. The outcome of this study shows that microbiological parameters does not influence the ovipositioning of the Aedes mosquito thus proving that all containers containing water have the potential in becoming a breeding site for the Aedes mosquito.
