Insect pests attacks on Cacao (Theobroma cacao L) plantations are generally controlled using chemical (non-organic) pesticides. Pesticides that are applied continuously can cause pest resistance, pest resurgence, and environmental pollution. Environmental pollution can disrupt the ecosystem due to increased toxic residues in plant tissue or the soil. Therefore, it is necessary to design a pest trap with charm and an automatic actuator based on a microcontroller on the Arduino board. This automatic insect trap is called the Teptrap v1. Five units of the infrared sensor type E18-D50NK are used to detect insect pests. The attractants used were TL lamps, yellow lights and attractants attached to the trap system. Teptrap v1 shows excellent performance during 33 days of research. As evidenced by the fan actuator system that works stably with a catching accuracy of 82.74%, insect drop time is 6 minutes 33 seconds, and the actuator response speed turns on the light, yellow LED and pumps <1 second (± 10 mS). This insect pest control trap can reduce the use of spray pesticides by 20-50%, thereby saving the cost of purchasing pesticides up to IDR 74,468 per hectare of Cacao.
