Abstract— One of the alternative methods of termite control that can be done is the feeding method. In this study, impregnated bait will be formulated with Pineapple peel extract and Bintaro liquid smoke which functions as a poison for termites. To attract termites to eat poisonous bait, 1% of an attractant compound in the form of methyl eugenol is given to the artificial bait. The concentrations of liquid smoke used were 2 and 4%. Pineapple peel extract is known to have antifeedant activity (reduces appetite) against pests that eat it. The active ingredients in this extract have the ability to damage the digestive mucosa of termites and kill the termite symbiont protozoa so that the ability of termites to digest can be decreased or lost. The concentrations of pineapple peel extract used in this study were 3 and 6%. Based on data obtained from data on time of death, percent mortality and percent palatability of termites to bait, it shows that the best treatment is treatment K7 which causes highest termite mortality for 12 days with palatability of bait is 7.55%.
Keywords— termite, bait, toxic, pineapple peel, bintaro.
