Evodia suavoelense have been extensively studied to repel dengue’s mosquitos’ vectors that still become health problem in Indonesia. However, there has not been any research yet that shows number of E. suavoelens plants needed to repel mosquitoes from the room. This study aims to find the minimum number of E. suavoelens plants required per cubic meter to make room free from Aedes aegypti mosquitoes. This was an experimental study using two rooms size 36 m3 each connected by a door. The first room contained Ae. aegypti while another room contained rabbit lived in large-sized cages with 4 CCTVs installed in every corner. E. suavoelens plants placed in the rabbit’s room. The door connecting those rooms was oppened so that Ae. aegypti entered the rabbit’s room. We placed E. suavoelens plants in the rabbit’s room and measured how many E. suavoelens plants nedded to avoid Ae. aegypti from bitting the rabbit. The result of research using regression analysis showed Y = 67.321- 3.411X. Thus, it takes at least 20 E. suavoelens plants per 36 m3 or 0.55 E. suavoelens plant per m3 to repel Ae. aegypti mosquitoes entering a room
