Essential oils for the development of eco-friendly mosquito larvicides: A review
TLDR
This review evaluated the current research on using EOs as potential larvicides based on their chemical composition and biological efficacy, and found that more than 2/3 of the plants were from only 5 families: Lamiaceae, Cupressaceae, Rutaceae, Apiaceae, and Myrtaceae. Expand

Thirty-four essential oils were tested for insecticidal activity (fumigation or topical application) against larvae Spodoptera littoralis. Twenty essential oils applied by fumigation were highlyExpand
Essential Oils as Ecofriendly Biopesticides? Challenges and Constraints.
TLDR
Key challenges for future research include: development of efficient stabilization processes, simplification of the complex and costly biopesticide authorization requirements, and optimization of plant growing conditions and extraction processes leading to EOs of homogeneous chemical composition.

  • 1 February 2008
TLDR
Essential oils from Pogostemon cablin proved to be the most efficient at a lethal dose of 3 µg/fly after topical application after screened against the house fly, Musca domestica L. under laboratory conditions. Expand
Larvicidal property of essential oils against Culex quinquefasciatus Say (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
High antioviposition effectiveness was found in all selected oils, and almost 100% deterrence of female oviposition was determined for all oils in concentrations of 0.02%. Expand

  • 1 December 2004
TLDR
The methanol extracts of eight species of medicinal plants were tested for insecticidal activity in third instar larvae of Egyptian cottonworm and the extracts of Ocimum basilicum, Origanum majorana and Salvia officinalis appeared to be highly toxic. Expand
History, presence and perspective of using plant extracts as commercial botanical insecticides and farm products for protection against insects – a review
TLDR
The history, presence and perspective of using plant extracts as commercial botanical insecticides and farm products for protection against insects – a review are critically reviewed. Expand

  • 1 February 2008
Methanol extracts of the aerial parts from 62 Euro-Asiatic plant species were tested for larvicidal activity against the mosquito Culex quinquefasciatus Say (Diptera: Culicidae) under laboratoryExpand
Larvicidal effects of various Euro-Asiatic plants against Culex quinquefasciatus Say larvae (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
Extracts from 56 species of plants in the Euro-Asiatic region were tested for larvicidal activity against the fourth larval instar of the mosquito Culex quinquefasciatus Say and the extracts of the plants Otanthus maritimus and Ammi visnaga displayed the highest larv suicidal effect. Expand
