The sample consisted of 39 for the case group and 39 for the control group. The variables used were 3M behavior (covering the water container, draining the water container, burying unused things) and the incidence of DHF.  This study used the Chi-square test.

Result: The results showed that there was a relationship between the habitual draining of the water reservoirs with dengue fever, where p=0.000 (p<0.005). There was a relationship between the habit of closing the water reservoirs with dengue fever; p=0.000 (p<0.005). There was a relationship between the habits of thrift burial with dengue hemorrhagic fever; p=0.000 (p<0.005).
