Non-insecticide malaria control is carried out to reduce the environmental impact. Control can be done biologically. One biological agent that can be used in vector eradication is Bacillus thuringiensis Israeliensis (B.T.I). The use of bacteria can be optimized by using a culture medium that is cheap and easy to obtain. This research is an experimental laboratory work because it is used to determine the ability of the Bacillus thuringiensis Israeliensis (B.t.i) bacterium bred in coconut water media for the death of Anopheles sp. The results showed that the average death of Anopheles mosquito larvae was more common in old coconut water, compared to the medium using young coconut water. There is a significant difference in larval mortality using young and old coconut water culture media.
