Ten species of plants, reported to possess carminative property, were screened for larvicidal potential against Culex quinquefasciatus by exposing early 4th instar larvae to a series of concentrations of the ethanolic extracts of the plants. Mortality counts were made after 24 hours exposure. Probit analysis using computerized Harvard Programming (Hg1, 2) was employed to determine the LC50, LC95 and LC99 values in order to compare the larvicidal potency of the ten plants. Marked larvicidal… CONTINUE READING
