Abstract : Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever or better known as Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF). This DHF vector is the Aedes aegypti mosquito through repeated bites of susceptible people. Efforts that are often made to prevent the spread of DHF through the eradication of mosquito nests (PSN) and case-control have not been running optimally because the eradication of dengue disease does not only eradicate Aedes aegypti mosquitoes but also eradicate the dengue virus carried by these mosquitoes. Thus the emphasis on eradication is also directed at reducing the number of mosquitoes that can carry the dengue virus in a way, which is often done by killing the larvae. Meanwhile, removing larvae is commonly used by implementing 3M Plus and this has received less attention from the community because it is considered an effort with unclear results compared to smoking. The research to be carried out is categorized as mixed methods between qualitative and quantitative research. Mixed methods are a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods to become a synergistic force, can produce two different views, open interdisciplinary job opportunities, demonstrate methodological skills, and build intuitive knowledge-seeking work. The research location is in Padang Pariman Regency and several Nagari were selected as research areas. The data used are secondary data and primary data.
