Essential oil of seeds of Trachyspermum ammi (Linn.) Sprauge and its pure constituent thymol showed promising results when evaluated for larvicidal, oviposition-deterrent, vapor toxicity, and repellent activity against malarial vector, Anopheles stephensi. Thymol was 1.6-fold more toxic than the oil toward fourth-instar larvae of A. stephensi with LD50 values of 48.88 and 80.77 µg/ml, respectively. Egg laying by female adults of A. stephensi was much significantly reduced when exposed to vapors… CONTINUE READING
