The aim of this research was to know the effectiveness of heating insecticide bednet, against the mosquito Aedes aegypti. As many as 240 Olyset samples from eleven health center in Bangka District were tested its effectiveness against mosquitoes with WHO ball test method. In these test, there used 25 Aedes aegypti female, and 3-5 days old. Bednet sample treatments was collected from six health centre areas that the people washed and heated the nets, however, the control samples was taken from five health centre areas where the pople only washed their nets without heating. Sample collections were done four periods with interval time three months, from September 2007 to June 2008. The observation on knockdown effect/mortality of Aedes aegypti was done on 30 minutes, 60 minutes, and 24 hours after 3 minutes exposured. The effectiveness of Olyset bed net was based on the value of knock-down time 50% (KT-50). The result showed that the average percentage mortality of Aedes aegypti after 30 minutes, 60 minutes and 24 hours exposured on period of I, II, III and IV in the control groups and on the treatment groups were not significant differents. However, based on the value of KT-50, the heat regeneration on Olyset net has a better effectiveness compared with the control (P≤0,05).

Keywords: Olyset, long-lasting insecticidal net, Aedes aegypti, heat regeneration.
