The bioactivity of hexane extract from the nuts of Anacardium occidentale (Linnaeus), ethanol extracts from the bark of Myrianthus arboreus (P. Beauv) and fruits of Xylopia aethiopica (Dunal), were studied at five concentration levels (0.1%, 0.2%, 0.3%, 0.4% and 0.5%) against the larvae, pupae and adults of Anopheles gambiae (Giles). Results indicated that X. aethiopica caused significantly (P < 0.05) higher mortality of larvae, pupae and adult mosquitoes than other plant extracts tested. It… CONTINUE READING
