Vector control is by far the most successful method for reducing incidences of mosquito-borne diseases. Plant products have been tested as insecticides against mosquitoes as they are nontoxic to mammals and are promising candidates to replace conventional insecticides. In the present study, the bioefficacy of crude solvent leaf extracts of Alternanthera sessilis (Amaranthaceae), Amaranthus dubius (Amaranthaceae), Sesbania grandiflora (Fabaceae) and Solanum nigrum (Solanaceae) were tested on the… Expand
