Mosquito larvicidal activity and phytochemical screening of methanol and ethanol extract of leaves and flowers of Lantana camara Linn belongs to the family of Verbanaceae have been evaluated in the present study. [] Key Result Larvicidal effect on 3 and 4 instar larvae of mosquito species Aedes aegypti and Culex rd th quinquefasciatus have been investigated in a dose dependent manner for 24 h. With 1.0 mg/ml concentration of extracts of Lantana camara maximum mortality was observed in Aedes aegypti exposed…

LARVICIDAL ACTIVITY OF PEDILANTHUS TITHYMALOIDES (L.) POIT (EUPHORBIACEAE) LEAF AGAINST THE DENGUE VECTOR AEDES AEGYPTI (L.) (DIPTERA: CULICIDAE)
TLDR
The crude ethanolic leaf extract of Pedilanthus tithymaloides exhibited a moderate level of larvicidal property with a LC50 value of 0.32 and 0.12 per cent after 24 and 48 hours.
EVALUATION OF LARVICIDAL ACTIVITY OF THE ALCOHOLIC EXTRACT OF THE PLANT COLEUS VETTIVEROIDES K.C. JACOB FAMILY: LABIATAE AGAINST THE HUMAN FILARIASIS VECTOR
Mosquitoes transmit many serious human diseases like malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever, filariasis etc and the use of chemical insecticidal agent result in insecticidal resistance and environmental
Larvicidal activity of ethanolic extract of Azadirachta indica against Aedes aegypti larvae
TLDR
The results obtained in this study demonstrated the larvicidal potential of the ethanolic extract of Azadirachta indica against larvae of A. aegypti.
Larvicidal Activities of Leaf Extracts of Adansonia digitata L. (Malvales: Malvaceae) and Ficus sur Forssk (Rosales: Moraceae) against Culex quinquefasciatus Mosquito (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
The findings of this study suggest that A. digitata and F. sur are promising sources of botanical lead agents in the development of sustainable potent larvicides, for integrated control programmes against mosquito-borne diseases.
Larvicidal Activity of Elytraria acaulis against Culex quinquefasciatus and Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
Elytraria acaulis may be used as an alternative to synthetic chemical pesticides for control of vectors to reduce vector borne diseases and did not harm to total environment.
Sublethal Effects of Ethanol Extract of Ocimum sanctum on Laboratory Bred Population of Dengue Mosquito Aedes aegypti L. (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
The studied indicated moderate lethal and efficient sublethal effects of ethanol extract of O. sanctum against A. aegypti, and the bioactive compounds present in the extract, individually or synergistically may be used in formulating a strategy for the mosquito management.
Evaluation of Larval Toxicity of Lantana Camara L. and Catharanthus Roseus L. against Culex Quinquefasciatus say and Aedes Aegypti L
TLDR
The results suggest that the aqueous extract of C. roseus have the potential to be used as an ecofriendly approach for the control larvae of vector mosquito C. quinquefasciatus and A. aegypti.
Larvicidal Activity of Cerbera odollam Gaertn Against a Dengue Vector, Aedes aegypti(Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
The results showed that the crude extracts of rinds, stem bark, leaves, and seed kernels had poor larvicidal effects, however, the highest larval mortality was shown when the crude extract of seed kernels was used at a concentration of 2.0 g/l after an exposure of 48 h.
Oviposition deterrent activity from the ethanolic extract of Pongamia pinnata, Coleus forskohlii, and Datura stramonium leaves against Aedes aegypti and Culex quinquefaciatus
TLDR
Ethanolic extracts of leaves of Pongamia pinnata, Coleus forskohlii, and Datura stramonium were evaluated for oviposition deterrent activity against Aedes aegypti and Culex quinquefasciatus.
Larvicidal activity of Nerium oleander L. (Apocynaceae) flower extracts against Culex quinquefasciatus Say (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
In the present study, the crude hexane and aqueous extract of Nerium oleander flowers were reported for larvicidal activity against the filarial vector, Culex quinquefasciatus and death was observed for 24 and 48 hours.
