Lantana Camara Leaf Extract: A Prospective Organic Mosquito Larvicide

  title={Lantana Camara Leaf Extract: A Prospective Organic Mosquito Larvicide},
  author={Nasiru Sheshe},
The larvicidal activity of Lantara camara Linn (Verbenaceae) against the larvae of common species of mosquitoes found within the Philippines was investigated in the present study. The researchers collected 50 grams of Lantana camara leaves which were dried and mixed with 250mL of methanol. It was kept for 24 hours with periodically shaking. The procedure had been repeated for three times with the fresh volume of methanol and the final filtrates were collected, concentrated and evaporated to… Expand
