Serangan Ulat Bulu Meluas

Serangan Ulat Bulu Meluas
Ke Barat, Sempat Hebohkan SMP 2 Moyudan



SLEMAN – Serangan ulat bulu di wilayah Kabupaten Sleman meluas. SetelahKecamatan Prambanan dan Gamping, serangan ulat bulu terjadi juga di wilayah Kecamatan Moyudan. Pagi-pagi kemarin, ulat bulu telah menghebohkan warga sekolah di SMP N 2 Moyudan. Sedikitnya lima pohon yang ada di lingkungan sekolah tersebut diserang. Jumlahnya pun tak bisa dikatakan sedikit, karena setiap pohon bisa terdapat lebih dari 30-an ulat bulu.


Awalnya adanya ulat bulu di sekolah yang berada di Desa Sumberarum itu diketahui oleh seorang siswa kelas VIII F bernama Dian Arum. Ia curiga dengan seorang temannya yang mengaku merasakan gatal-gatal. Lantas secara tak sengaja ia pun melihat beberapa gerombolan ulat bulu di sebuah pohon Ketepeng yang ada di depan kelasnya.


Dian lantas langsung melapor kepada ayahnya yang menjabat sebagai Sekretaris Desa Sumberarum. Dari situlah pihak desa kemudian mengecek langsung ke lapangan. Dan ternyata benar, tak hanya satu pohon yang terserang, melainkan lebih dari lima pohon yang terdiri dari pohon Ketepeng dan Sonokeling.


Ternyata ulat bulu ini juga telah memakan ‘korban’. Seorang guru bernama Suripto juga diserang gatal-gatal setelah sebelumnya ditengarai terkena ulat bulu di kulit. Pihak desa lantas langsung berinisiatif untuk melakukan penyemprotan dengan insektisida secara swadaya.


“Sebelum pihak desa menyemprotnya, kami pihak sekolah juga sudah berusaha membasmi dengan obat nyamuk semprot, tapi kurang mempan,” ungkap Kepala Sekolah SMP N 2 Moyudan Siti Rosidah kepada wartawan, kemarin (14/4).


Untungnya, kehebohan ulat bulu di sana tak mengganggu kegiatan belajar mengajar yang sedang berlangsung. Pelajaran tetap berlangsung seperti biaa. Hanya saja, kejadin ini sempat membuat khawatir para siswa. Sebagian siswa mengaku takut dan khawatir jika populasinya semakin banyak sehingga mengganggu aktivitas belajar mengajar. “Hiiih merinding,” ungkap salah seorang murid bernama Hestu sembari mengedikkan bahu ketika melihat beberapa ulat bulu yang telah lemas usai disemprot.


Hal senada diungkapkan siswa kelas VIII B Prian Hidayanto. Ia mengaku khawatir jika ulat bulu semakin banyak di lingkungan sekolahnya. “Khawatir kalau nanti tambah banyak, kami kan bisa gatal-gatal,” ujarnya.


DItemukannya populasi ulat bulu di sekolah ini rupanya menyita perhatian banyak pihak. Camat Moyudan bersama unsur Muspika, pemerintah desa (Pemdes) Desa Sumberarum beserta pamong didampingi aparat Polres Sleman langsung datang ke lokasi begitu mengetahui kejadian ini.


Kepala Desa Sumberarum Senaja mengatakan pihaknya memang memberikan perhatian khusus pada kejadian ini. Bahkan, pihak pemdes langsung mengambil langkah antisipasi pertumbuhan ulat bulu agar tak meresahkan warga. “Sampai saat ini memang baru ada dua laporan tempat yang ditemukan adanya ulat bulu. Tapi untuk mengantisipasi penyebaran semakin luas, kami langsung lakukan penyemprotan swadaya agar tak menjadi banyak seperti di Probolinggo,” tuturnya.

Sebelumnya di Desa Sumberarum mengaku telah ditemukan ulat bulu di lingkungan Balai Desa Sumberarum dan Puskesmas yang berada persis di belakang balai desa. Jenis ulat bulu yang ada di Balai desa dan puskesmas berbeda dengan jenis yang ditemukan di SMPN 2 Moyudan.

Di balai desa ulatnya berwarna kuning dan jika terkena kulit akan terasa gatal dan panas, sering disebut ulat jenis srengenge. Sedangkan di SMPN 2 Moyudan berwarna hitam sering disebut ulat jaran.


Dinas Pertanian, Perikanan, dan Kehutanan (Dispertan) Kabupaten Sleman yang telah menerima laporan adanya ulat bulu di sekolah tersebut pun langsung menerjunkan petugas POPT untuk memantau populasinya. “Ulat bulu ini memang sulit dikendalikan pertumbuhannya karena sulit mendeteksi setiap pohon, apakah ada telurnya atau tidak. Itu hanya bisa diberantas dengan pestisida khusus ulat,” tandas petugas POPT Wilayah Moyudan Kadintan Sleman Biyono. (nis)


Pakai Pestisida Hayati, Rekomendasi Akhir Kementan Menangani Wabah Ulat Bulu


Pohon-pohon yang diserang ulat bulu tak akan mati, namun sebagian besar terancam tidak bisa menghasilkan buah selama musim 2011. Pada musim panen berikutnya, buah dari pohon yang terserang ulat bulu tetap bisa berproduksi. Untuk mengantisipasi serangan wabah ulat bulu, kata Bayu, kementerian pertanian telah menyiapkan tim khusus serta insektisida.


“Itu langkah akhir, pengendalian secara alami tetap menjadi prioritas yang direkomendasikan kementan,” ujar Wakil Menteri Pertanian (Mentan) Bayu Krisna Murti usai bertemu sejumlah petinggi Fakultas Pertanian UGM, kemarin (14/4).


Alasannya wabah yang terjadi sebagai akibat siklus perkembangbiakan ulat bulu secara alami. Salah satu
solusinya dengan memilih pestisida berbahan baku hayati. Bisa juga memanfaatkan ekstrak musuh alami ulat bulu dari UGM. Dari pantauan pemerintah, kata Bayu, wabah ulat bulu di Indonesia hanya menyebabkan kerugian material di Probolinggo, Jawa Timur sebagai lokasi suspek pertama kali di Indonesia.


Kendati begitu Bayu tak bisa menghitung pasti angka kerugian yang dimaksud. Menurutnya efek psikologis yang dialami masyarakat korban ulat bulu justeru lebih besar dari kerugian material. Data yang ada menunjukkkan, di Probolinggo total ada sekitar 1,8 juta batang pohon mangga. Dari angka itu sekitar 14.500 batang pohon mangga diserang ulat bulu. Dan, 80 persen diantara pohon yang terserang ulat bulu terancam tak bisa berbuah. “Hanya itu kerugiannya. Angkanya tidak dapat diperhitungkan sebab tak bisa dipastikan jumlah produksi tiap satu pohon,” terangnya.


Menurut Bayu Krisna Murti, serangan ulat bulu di daerah lain tak sehebat di Probolinggo. Namun dampak psikologis bagi masyarakat meluas hingga beberapa daerah di Indonesia. Lebih lanjut Bayu menjelaskan serangan ulat bulu yang terjadi di beberapa daerah berbeda jenis.


Khusus di Probolinggo, menurut Bayu, bukan jenis baru. Ulat bulu hitam itu sudan ada sejak tahun 1879. Sementara itu di wilaha DIJ, wabah ulat bulu telah menyebar di empat wilayah, yakni Sleman, Bantul, Kota Jogja, dan Kulonprogo.


Kepala Dinas Pertanian (Distan) DIJ Nanang Suwandi mengatakan telah menyiapkan lima langkah pengendalian ulat bulu. Diantaranya sanitasi atau penguburan ranting pohon yang mati, pengendalian mekanis dengan menangkap ngengat dan kepompong, pemasangan lampu UV untuk mengendalikan ngengat, dan memanfaatkan agen hayati beauveria atau musuh alami ulat bulu, serta penyemprotan
menggunakan pestisida sebagai alternatif terakhir. “Memanfaatkan musuh alami, wabah ulat bulu diprediksi bisa hilang dengan sendirinya sekitar tiga sampai empat minggu,” ujar Nanang.(yog)

Initially the caterpillars in schools located in the Village Sumberarum was known by an eighth grader named Diane F Arum. He was suspicious of a friend who claimed to feel the itch. Then by accident he had seen several caterpillars gang ketepeng in a tree in front of the class.


Diane then report directly to his father, who served as Secretary of the Village Sumberarum. From there the village and then check directly to the field. And it's true, not just one tree is attacked, but more than five trees consisting of trees and Sonokeling ketepeng.


It turned out that these caterpillars have also been eating 'victims'. A teacher named Suripto also attacked the itching after previously identified in caterpillars exposed skin. Parties to the village and then immediately took the initiative to do the spraying with insecticides in a self-supporting.


"Before the sprayed villages, our schools have also been trying to eradicate the mosquito spray, but less effective," said Principal SMP N 2 Moyudan Rosidah Siti told reporters, yesterday (14 / 4).


Fortunately, there furor caterpillars do not disrupt school activity is in progress. The lesson continues as biaa. Only, this time to make worry kejadin students. Some students said they were afraid and worried if the population is more and more that disrupts teaching and learning activities. "Hiiih goosebumps," said a student named Hestu as he shrugged when he saw some caterpillars that have been weak over sprayed.


Similar disclosed class VIII B Prian Hidayanto. He claimed to worry if the caterpillars were more and more in the school environment. "Fearing that will add a lot, we can not itch," he said.


The presence of caterpillars in the school population is apparently seizing the attention of many parties. Camat Muspika Moyudan joint element, the village government (Decrease font size) Sumberarum Village and its officials accompanied by police officers Sleman immediately went to the site so aware of this incident.


Village Head Sumberarum Senaja said it does give special attention to this incident. In fact, the parties immediately took steps Decrease font size caterpillar growth anticipated for not disturbing the residents. "Until now there is new found two reports where the caterpillars. But to anticipate the more widespread deployment, we immediately do the spraying of self-help so as not to be much like in Probolinggo, "he said.
Earlier in the village of Sumberarum claimed to have found caterpillars on environment and health centers Sumberarum Village Hall is located just behind the village hall. Types of caterpillars in the village hall and health center different from the types found in SMPN 2 Moyudan.

It can only be eradicated with a special pesticide caterpillars, "said the officer POPT Moyudan Kadintan Sleman District Biyono. (Nis)


Biological Pesticide Use, Final Recommendations Kementan Handle Feather Worm Outbreak


The trees are attacked by caterpillars will not die, but most threatened not produce fruit during the 2011 season. At the next harvest season, fruit from trees attacked by caterpillars can still be productive. To anticipate the outbreak of caterpillar attack, said Bayu, agricultural ministries have set up special teams as well as insecticides.


"It's the final step, naturally control remains a priority kementan recommended," said Vice Minister of Agriculture (Agriculture Ministry), Bayu Krisna Murti after meeting a number of senior Faculty of Agriculture, Gadjah Mada University, yesterday (14 / 4).


The reason for the outbreaks as a result of the breeding cycle of caterpillars in nature. One
solution by choosing the raw material of biological pesticides. Can also take advantage of natural enemies of caterpillars extracts from GMU. From monitoring the government, said Bayu, caterpillar outbreak in Indonesia is only caused material losses in Probolinggo, East Java as the location for the first time in Indonesia suspected.


Nevertheless Bayu certainly can not count the number of loss in question. According to the psychological effects experienced by affected communities precisely caterpillars greater than the material losses. Existing data, indicating, in Probolinggo total there are approximately 1.8 million mango trees. Of that number about 14,500 mango trees attacked by caterpillars. And, 80 percent of trees attacked by caterpillars threatened can not bear fruit. "That was all the losses. Can not be calculated because the numbers can not be ascertained the amount of production of each single tree, "he explained.


According to Bayu Krisna Murti, caterpillar attacks in other areas not as good as in Probolinggo. But the psychological impact for the community extends to several areas in Indonesia. Bayu explained further attack caterpillars that occur in several different types of areas.


Especially in Probolinggo, according to Bayu, not a new species. Sudan black caterpillars that existed since 1879. Meanwhile in wilaha DIJ, caterpillar outbreak has spread across four regions, namely Sleman, Bantul, Yogyakarta, and Kulonprogo.


Head of Department of Agriculture (standardized) DIJ Nana Kelvin said it had set up five steps to control caterpillars. Among sanitation or burial of dead tree limbs, mechanical control by catching moths and pupae, the installation of UV lights to control the moths, and use of biological agents or natural enemies Beauveria caterpillars, as well as spraying
use pesticides as a last alternative. "Utilizing the natural enemies, outbreaks of caterpillars predicted could disappear by itself about three to four weeks," said Nana.
