Abstract


Efforts to reduce losses caused by termite attacks are require an effective and environmentally friendly method. One of the environmentally friendly termite controls can be used such as bait system using natural attractants. Plants that can be used as natural attractants include eucalyptus leaves (Melaleuca leucadendra). The purpose of the study were to evaluate the effectiveness of the mixture of eucalyptus leaves, waste paper and liquid waste from tofu factory which has potential as natural attractants to control of termites and to determine the most effective composition of eucalyptus leaf, waste paper and liquid waste from tofu factory as a bio-atactant. Testing was done in two methods: No-choice test and two choice test, using five compositions of eucalyptus leaves: waste paper i.e 0%: 100% (as a control), 20%: 80, 40%: 60%, 60%: 40 %, and 80%: 20%. The results showed that the mixture of eucalyptus leaves and waste paper with composition of 40%: 60% can be used as a bio-attractant against termites (Coptotermes sp).

Keywords: bio-attractant, eucalyptus leaves, waste paper, Coptotermes sp.
