Abstract

One of the important factors in malaria transmission is population density of vector. The intensity of transmission is also influenced by the occurrence of contact between vector and human beings. The study aims to determine the correlation between malaria incidence of An. aconitus and rainfall in Lengkong sub-district, Sukabumi. The highest SPR was 25% in June. The highest indoor bite to human occurred in October with the average of 0.35 and the lowest indoor bite was only 0.11 per hour in January. The highest outdoor bite of An. aconitus occurred in October of about 0.58 per hour and the lowest one was only 0.03 in January. An. aconitus was found to bite goats instead of human of about 65.7%. The study revealed that there was a positive correlation between the bites of An. aconilus with the incidence of malaria (p<0.05). Similarly, rainfall also indirectly influenced the incidence of malaria since the rainfall influence the development of mosquitoes. There were no differences between indoor and outdoor bites in influencing malaria incidence in the area of study. Keywords: An. aconitus, malaria, rainfall, Sukabumi
