Abstract Objective To assess the repellency to female Aedes aegypti (Ae. aegypti), Anopheles dirus (An. dirus) and Culex quinquefasciatus (Cx. quinquefasciatus) of seven essential oils using two treatment methods. [...] Key Method Methods Topical applications of three dose concentrations (0.02, 0.10 and 0.21 mg/cm 2 ) were made on the forearms of volunteers. Dose-response study and protection time study were employed in the experiment. Results In the dose-response test, Cymbopogon citratus (C. citratus…Expand

Repellency of essential oils extracted from Thai native plants against Aedes aegypti (Linn.) and Culex quinquefasciatus (Say)
TLDR
The results revealed that the potential of essential oil extracted from B. rotunda, Z. zerumbet, L. petiolata, C. zedoaria, and Z. cassumunar had attributes of good repellent and deterred biting and were recommended for further study to develop as commercial repellents.
Excito-Repellency of Essential Oils against an Aedes aegypti (L.) Field Population in Thailand
TLDR
The essential oils from native plants tested, and likely many other extracts found in plants, have inherent repellent and irritant qualities that should to be screened and optimized for their behavior-modifying properties against Ae.
Efficacy of essential oils from citrus plants against mosquito vectors Aedes aegypti (Linn.) and Culex quinquefasciatus (Say).
TLDR
Repellent activity indicated the order of protection time and biting rate against two mosquito species in eight essential oils as C. aurantifolia was effective as repellent and feeding deterrent against Ae.
Repellent activity of essential oils from Rutaceae plants against Aedes aegypti (Linn.) and Culex quinquefasciatus (Say).
TLDR
Herbal essential oils derived from eight species of Rutaceae plants (Citrus aurantifolia) were applied on the forearms of volunteers and repellent activity indicated the order of protection time and biting rate against two mosquito species in eight essential oils.
Repellent effects of the essential oils of Cymbopogon citratus and Tagetes minuta on the sandfly, Phlebotomus duboscqi
TLDR
The laboratory tests showed that the essential oils of the two plants were highly repellent to adult sand flies, P. duboscqi due to their high efficacy at very low doses, hence, the envisaged safety in their use over chemical repellents.
Toxicity of essential oils from orange (Citrus sinesis L. Obbeck) and lemongrass (Cymbopogon nardus L. Rendle) on Aedes aegypti a vector of Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF)
TLDR
This research has studied the larvacidal activity of essential oil from orange and lemongrass and found that both of essential oils can be used as a green pesticide candidates.
Adulticide and repellent activity of essential oils against Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae) – A review
Abstract Aedes aegypti (Ae. aegypti) is responsible for the spread of diseases that compromise public health such as dengue fever, urban yellow fever, chikungunya and zika. Synthetic insecticides are
Repellency of 29 Synthetic and Natural Commercial Topical Insect Repellents Against Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae) in Central Mexico
TLDR
Repellent efficacy data must be integrated into the decision-making process for an optimal response to the local (or specific region) situation and show that most of the repellent products did not provide satisfactory levels of personal protection against mosquito bites.
Mosquito repellent properties of Delonix elata (L.) gamble (Family: Fabaceae) against filariasis vector, Culex quinquefasciatus Say. (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
Crude extracts of D. elata exhibit the potential for controlling Cx.

TLDR
Important oil from vetiver elicited the greatest irritant responses in Cx.

TLDR
It can be concluded the crude extract of A. paniculata was a potential for controlling Cx.
Repellency effect of forty-one essential oils against Aedes, Anopheles, and Culex mosquitoes
TLDR
Five most effective oils were evaluated against the yellow fever mosquito, Aedes aegypti (Linnaeus), the malaria vector, Anopheles stephensi (Liston), and the filariasis and encephalitis vector, Culex quinquefasciatus (Say) (Diptera: Culicidae) using the skin of human volunteers to find out the protection time and repellency.
Preliminary evaluation of the repellent activity of some plant essential oils against Simulium damnosum s.l., the vector of human onchocerciasis
TLDR
Application of these volatile oils, especially at the peak biting periods, would serve to reduce human-vector contact and thereby limit disease transmission.
Potential larvicidal and pupacidal activities of herbal essential oils against Culex quinquefasciatus say and Anopheles minimus (Theobald).
TLDR
The larvicidal and pupacidal effects of eight herbal essential oils were tested against third instar, fourth instar (L4), and pupal stages of Culex quinquefasciatus and Anopheles minimus and Citronella grass oil #2 (Cymbopogon nardus) proved to have the greatest toxicity.
Laboratory evaluation of traditionally used plant-based insect repellent against the malaria vector Anopheles arabiensis Patton (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
The result suggests that a methanol-leaf extract of Ethiopian traditionally used insect repellent plant, C. citratus, could serve as a potent insect repelling against vectors of disease.
