Lampung Province is one of the largest cassava producers in Indonesia. One of the abundant wastes that need to be processed is cassava stems. To utilize cassava stem waste into other alternative products, it is necessary to conduct a study on the manufacture of cassava stem waste into mosquito coils through mixing with citronella. The implementation of the research consisted of several stages, namely preparation of tools and materials, size reduction and screening, drying of materials, mixing of materials and adhesive, printing, drying of insect repellent, and data analysis. The results of data analysis were presented in the form of tables and graphs. Data analysis includes testing of moisture content, density, burning time, weight per unit, and wholeness test of mosquito coils. Based on the test, mosquito coils were produced with a circle diameter of 12 cm, a width of 0.7 cm, a thickness of 0.4 mm, a length of 80 cm, and a brownish yellow color. Mosquito repellent produced from mixing cassava stem waste and Citrolella that fulfils two SII standard criteria, namely wholenes test and water content. two criteria does not meet the SII standard, namely weight per unit and burn time. Keywords: Cassava stem waste, Mosquito coils, Citronella.
