Abstract: Until now, efforts to control mosquitoes as vectors still using chemical insecticides. The use of chemicals in continuing can cause resistance towards mosquitoes and cause environmental damage. One of the alternatives that can be utilized is a biological control, such as Bacillus thuringiensis. This research was conducted for three months in the Laboratory of Microbiology Department of Biology, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Lampung University. The results showed that isolates of B. thuringiensis from the ground under trees at Lampung University environment equally effective towards Aedes aegypti larval mortality. The study design was Completely Randomized Design (CRD) arranged as factorial. The density of B. thuringiensis isolates 2x107cell / ml Br (A) can cause mortality to larvae of Aedes aegypti high of 22.5% followed by the density of the density of 2x106 cells / ml by 7.5%. Keywords: Bacillus thuringiensis, Aedes Aegypti, Mortality
