The efficacy of 30 aromatic compounds and their mutual binary combinations was assessed for acute toxicity against the larvae Culex quinquefasciatus. [...] Key Result Based on comparison of the lethal doses, thymol and p-cymene were selected as the most effective (LD50 = 18 and 21 mg L−1, respectively, and LD90 = 25 and 30 mg L−1, respectively).Expand
Toxicity and physiological effects of ajwain (Carum copticum, Apiaceae) essential oil and its major constituents against Tuta absoluta (Meyrick) (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae).
TLDR
Thymol demonstrated significant potential as a controlling agent of T. absoluta larvae, both larvicidal, compatible with other compounds with strong AChE inhibition properties, and could pave the way for development of new botanicals based on EO constituents. Expand
Efficacy of Two Monoterpenoids, Carvacrol and Thymol, and Their Combinations against Eggs and Larvae of the West Nile Vector Culex pipiens
TLDR
Overall, the findings pointed out that the 1:4 ratio of thymol-carvacrol blend can enhance the insecticidal efficacy on Cx. Expand
Resistance to insecticides and synergistic and antagonistic effects of essential oils on dimefluthrin toxicity in a field population of Culex quinquefasciatus Say.
TLDR
The aim of this study was to optimise the synergistic efficacy of essential oils combined with dimefluthrin and explore the major contribution composition of eucalyptus oil, basil oil and cinnamon oil as natural synergist of dimeFLuthrin against the field populations of C. quinquefasciatus. Expand
Toxicity and enzyme inhibition activities of the essential oil and dominant constituents derived from Artemisia absinthium L. against adult Asian citrus psyllid Diaphorina citri Kuwayama (Hemiptera: Psyllidae)
TLDR
The results indicated that the oil caused significant acute mortalities in both topical and residual contact applications, and some of the compounds from A. absinthium might be developed as eco-friendly approaches for the control of citrus psyllid. Expand
Mosquitocidal activity of twenty-eight plant essential oils and their binary mixtures against Culex quinquefasciatus, (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
Mixture of the plant essential oils and or mixtures of the constituent compounds can be used as effective control agents for the control of the filarial vector, C. quinquefasciatus. Expand
Enhancement of Temephos and Deltamethrin Toxicity by Petroselinum crispum Oil and its Main Constituents Against Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
The potential for using essential oil and its principal constituents as not only alternative larvicides, but also attractive synergists for enhancing efficacy of existing conventional insecticides is promoted. Expand
Chemical composition, insecticidal and biochemical effects of two plant oils and their major fractions against Aedes aegypti, the common vector of dengue fever
TLDR
Results proved that the test plant oils and their major fractions could be developed as natural pest control agents to control A. aegypti L, the common transmitter of Dengue fever. Expand
Combined Toxicity of Three Essential Oils Against Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae) Larvae
Abstract Essential oils are potential alternatives to synthetic insecticides because they have low mammalian toxicity, degrade rapidly in the environment, and possess complex mixtures of bioactiveExpand
Synergized mixtures of Apiaceae essential oils and related plant-borne compounds: Larvicidal effectiveness on the filariasis vector Culex quinquefasciatus Say
TLDR
The results pointed out the promising potential of four Apiaceae essential oils from Trachyspermum ammi, Smyrnium olusatrum, Pimpinella anisum and Helosciadium nodiflorum to develop cheap and effective mosquito larvicides, as well as the importance to consider the synergistic effects among the tested botanicals during the design of novel mosquito larVicides.

Biological Evaluation of Essential Oils from Selected Medicinal Plants and Their Main Components against Phytomonas davidi (Kinetoplastea: Trypanosomatidae)
TLDR
Eight essential oils from selected medicinal plants have been tested for their activity against Phytomonas davidi, a plant trypanosomal parasite and indicated the existence of antagonistic and synergistic effects depending on the concentration tested. Expand

TLDR
While the phenolic acids showed little or no effect on acute toxicity, all the tested simple phenols caused mortality within 24 h after application, and thymol, carvacrol, and 2,6-dimethoxyphenol showed significantly the highest efficiency. Expand
Toxic effects on and structure-toxicity relationships of phenylpropanoids, terpenes, and related compounds in Aedes aegypti larvae.
TLDR
The most potent compounds showed comparably good larvicidal activity in A. aegypti larvae as other terpenes, which is assumed to be the result of the increased lipophilicity. Expand
Acute, sublethal, antifeedant, and synergistic effects of monoterpenoid essential oil compounds on the tobacco cutworm, Spodoptera litura (Lep., Noctuidae).
TLDR
Trans-Anethole acted synergistically with thymol, citronellal, and alpha-terpineol, in terms of both acute toxicity and feeding deterrence, and several complex mixtures were developed and tested as leads for effective control agents. 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
Mosquitocidal activities of thyme oils (Thymus vulgaris L.) against Culex quinquefasciatus (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
Mortality increased significantly in relation to time of exposure, and total mortality of the larvae at the end of their development was about 90%. Expand
Insecticidal properties of Pimpinella anisum essential oils against the Culex quinquefasciatus and the non-target organism Daphnia magna
TLDR
The essential oil and trans-Anethole were toxic for Daphnia magna and significantly reduced its fertility at high concentrations (35–50 μL mL− 1) and long exposure (48 h) and no negative effect on DAPHnia mortality or fertility was found at shorter exposure times and/or lower concentrations. Expand
