Abstract Essential oils from 22 aromatic plant species were tested for mortality of the mosquito larvae Culex quinquefasciatus. Lethal concentrations were determined for individual essential oils. Essential oils obtained from Thymus vulgaris, Satureja hortensis and Thymus satureioides plants showed the highest effect, with LC50 found lower than 50 μg/ml (33, 36 and 44 μg/ml, respectively). Analyses showed that majority substances for T. vulgaris were thymol and p-cymene (60.3 and 10.1… Expand
Larvicidal potential of Acorus calamus L. essential oil against filarial vector mosquito Culex quinquefasciatus (Diptera: Culicidae)

Insecticidal properties of Pimpinella anisum essential oils against the Culex quinquefasciatus and the non-target organism Daphnia magna
TLDR
The essential oil and trans-Anethole were toxic for Daphnia magna and significantly reduced its fertility at high concentrations (35–50 μL mL− 1) and long exposure (48 h) and no negative effect on DAPHnia mortality or fertility was found at shorter exposure times and/or lower concentrations. Expand
Larvicidal activity of some plant extracts against two mosquito species Culex pipiens and Culiseta longiareolata
The larvicidal potential of aqueous extracts from leaves of three plants (Ricinus communis L., Daphne gnidium L. and Thymus vulgaris L.) was evaluated against the different larval instars of CulexExpand
Larvicidal activity of extracts from Ammi visnaga Linn. (Apiaceae) seeds against Culex quinquefasciatus Say. (Diptera: Culicidae).
TLDR
Khellin was significantly more effective compared to visnagin, whose LC50 was estimated at 8, 10 and 41 mg L(-1) for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th instar larvae, and very low natality, more than 77% lower for khellin compared to the control. Expand

TLDR
While the phenolic acids showed little or no effect on acute toxicity, all the tested simple phenols caused mortality within 24 h after application, and thymol, carvacrol, and 2,6-dimethoxyphenol showed significantly the highest efficiency. Expand
LARVICIDAL AND REPELLENT EFFECT OF LEAF AND STEM EXTRACTS FROM CESTRUM NOCTURNUM (SOLANACEAE) AGAINST CULEX PIPIENS L. (DIPTERA: CULICIDAE)
TLDR
Because of the high larvicidal and pupicidal potential of plant extracts tested, they can be used as effective alternatives to the existing synthetic pesticides for the control of Culex pipiens. Expand
Composition and biological activity of essential oils from Labiatae against Nezara viridula (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae) soybean pest.
TLDR
The results showed that the essential oils from O. vulgare and T. vulgaris could be applicable to the management of N. viridula and thyme was more toxic for nymphs and adults than oregano. Expand
Larvicidal effect of Clinopodium macrostemum essential oil extracted by microwave-assisted hydrodistillation against Culex quinquefasciatus (Diptera: Culicidae).
TLDR
The larvicidal effect of C. quinquefasciatus mosquito larvae can be attributed to the oxygenate compounds obtained by the extraction method, which is demonstrated by the microwave-assisted hydrodistillation method. Expand
Mosquito Larvicidal Activity of the Essential Oils of Erechtites Species Growing Wild in Vietnam
TLDR
Erechtites essential oils may serve as low-cost vector control agents for mosquito-borne infections and show good larvicidal activity against Aedes albopictus, Ae. Expand
Insecticidal activity of different extracts from Scrophularia canina L. against Culex pipiens molestus Forskal (Diptera, Culicidae)
TLDR
The marked mosquitocidal activity of petroleum ether and hexane extracts of the aerial part of S. canina against different life stages of C. pipiens molestus is promising to develop effective alternatives to synthetic insecticides. Expand
