Ovicidal and Oviposition Deterrent Activities of Medicinal Plant Extracts Against Aedes aegypti L. and Culex quinquefasciatus Say Mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
The hexane extract of L. acidissima could be used in an integrated mosquito management program and showed 100% oviposition deterrent activity against Cx. Expand
Effect of niloticin, a protolimonoid isolated from Limonia acidissima L. (Rutaceae) on the immature stages of dengue vector Aedes aegypti L. (Diptera: Culicidae).
TLDR
The results indicate that niloticin could be used as a potential natural mosquitocide and recorded strong larvicidal and pupicidal activities against Aedes aegypti. Expand
Delivery of chitosan/dsRNA nanoparticles for silencing of wing development vestigial (vg) gene in Aedes aegypti mosquitoes.
TLDR
The results showed that chitosan/dsRNA caused significant mortality, delayed growth development and caused adult wing-malformation, suggesting that vg gene intervention strategies through RNAi can emerge as viable option for pest control. Expand
Antimicrobial activity of some actinomycetes from Western Ghats of Tamil Nadu, India
TLDR
It is revealed that, among 106 actinomycetes screened, Streptomyces rimosus (FMS-20) (Accession No-KT827106) showed promising antimicrobial activity against all the tested human microbial pathogens. Expand
Isolation and molecular characterization of actinomycetes with antimicrobial and mosquito larvicidal properties
TLDR
The results suggest that Western Ghats regions may be a good natural source for isolation of actinobacteria and thereby for discovering novel molecules with antimicrobial and mosquito larvicidal properties. Expand
Comparative studies of tripolyphosphate and glutaraldehyde cross-linked chitosan-botanical pesticide nanoparticles and their agricultural applications.
TLDR
Chitosan-based nano-pesticide formulation holds great promise in H. armigera management and the effects of cross linking agents on CSNs and the biological properties against the insect pest were also studied. Expand
Larvicidal and Pupicidal Activities of Alizarin Isolated from Roots of Rubia cordifolia Against Culex quinquefasciatus Say and Aedes aegypti (L.) (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
Alizarin could be used as a potential larvicide and pupicide in Culex quinquefasciatus and Aedes aegypti and presented good larvicidal and pupicidal activities. Expand
Larvicidal and pupicidal activities of ecbolin A and ecbolin B isolated from Ecbolium viride (Forssk.) Alston against Culex quinquefasciatus Say (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
The present results suggest that ecbolin B could be used as a mosquitocidal agent against C. quinquefasciatus. Expand
Effect of compound Musizin isolated from Rhamnus wightii Wight and Arn on the immature stages of filarial vector mosquito Culex quinquefasciatus Say (Diptera: Culicidae) and its non-target studies
TLDR
The present study revealed that the isolated compound Musizin could be used as a natural pesticide to control vector mosquitoes. Expand
