Larvicidal bioassay was carried out in the laboratory to assess the potential of ethanolic extracts of dried fruits of three species of peppercorns: Long pepper, Piper longum L., Black pepper, Piper nigrum, and White pepper, Piper nigrum against the different instars of field-collected Indian strain of dengue fever mosquito (Aedes aegypti L.). The investigations established the larvicidal potential of all the varieties of pepper fruits against Ae. aegypti. Against early fourth instar, the… CONTINUE READING
