Larvicidal activity of Hibiscus abelmoschus Linn. (Malvaceae) against mosquitoes.


The larvicidal activity of roots of Hibiscus abelmoschus was evaluated against the larvae of mosquitoes in the genera Anopheles and Culex. Mean median lethal concentration values of the aqueous extract from the roots of H. abelmoschus against the larvae of Anopheles culicifacies, An. stephensi, and Culex quinquefasciatus were 52.3, 52.6, and 43.8 ppm… (More)
