Palembang city has the highest dengue cases compare to other region in SouthSumatera Province. This study compares two regions, first region with jumantik (kader)and application of ikan cupang, and the second region only applied with jumantik. Thisstudy aims to find public acceptance of ikan cupang (Ctenops vittatus) as larvae controlin the community and to determine larvae index (house index, container index, breteauindex) in both regions. Larvae found in this study were Aedes aegypty, Ae. albopictus andCulex spp. Comparative indicators of mosquito larvae inspection before and aftertreatment in Kelurahan Kebun Bunga were angka bebas jentik from 48% to 86%, houseindex from 52% to 14%, container index from 48% to 25%, and breteau index from 66%to 50%, while in Kelurahan Sukarami angka bebas jentik from 58% to 72%, house indexfrom 42% to 28%, container index from 36% to 50%, and breteau index from 66% to50%. Kelurahan Kebun Bunga and Kelurahan Sukarami categorized as region with highrisk of dengue infection. Ikan cupang was effective as Aedes larvae predator, and moreacceptable to the community compare to the chemical insecticide. This study suggest tomaintain jumantik in order to minimize dengue cases in Palembang city.Key words : dengue fever, jumantik plus, ikan cupang, larvae index.
