BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES Review of literature indicates that none of the chemicals so far studied for oviposition attractancy was found to be promising for operational use. Efforts are being made to find an effective substance to corner a large number of ovipositing females to selective breeding sites for ease of control operation. This will reduce insecticidal consumption and will be cost-effective. This study is aimed to evaluate the oviposition attractancy of aqueous infusion from a wood… CONTINUE READING
