Plant extracts are currently studied more and more because of their role in plant protection as well as in urban entomology. Investigations were made to assess the larvicidal potential of citrus waste-derived essential oils at different concentrations (300ppm, 400ppm, 500ppm, 600ppm, 700ppm and 800ppm) against early 4 instar larvae of Aedes albopictus (Diptera: Culicidae), a competent mosquito in dengue positive area. Results reveal that the seed and peel extracts of lemon (Citrus limon L… CONTINUE READING
