This study aims to determine the effect of water soaking papaya bark on the death of Aedes egypti larvae. Research location in Curup Tengah District. Quasi-experimental type, Chi-square analysis, calculating odds ratio, Chi-square test. Approximately (94.4%) there were 34 dead larvae, a small portion (5.5%) had 2 live larvae, from 36 larvae of Aedes aegypti in 50 ml of water soaking the papaya bark under 1 minute. Chi-square analysis results P value = 0.04 <α0.05, there is a significant effect of water soaking papaya bark on larvae death of Aedes aegypti. The value of p value = 0.043, has the influence of water soaking papaya bark, odds ratio = 4.10 times.
