Dengue and chikungunya are deadly diseases transmitted by Aedes aegypti. Essential oil a natural product contains highly volatile chemical compounds and use as a personal protection against blood sucking mosquito is an effective and safe method. The objective of these studies was to evaluate the synergistic effect of 10 effective oils with the help of K & D module and Electroantennogram (GCEAD). In the study of protection period, litsea + rosewood in the ratio of 1:1 (v/v) at 10% concentration… Expand

Repellent Efficacy of Some Essential Oils Against Aedes albopictus
The combination of Aniba rosaeodora (rosewood) and Litsea cubeba (litsea) oils showed 82% repellency against Aedes albopictus mosquito up to 4 h, useful for developing eco-friendly, efficient and secure mosquito repellent. Expand
Background: Mosquito species are the most important among the insects; for the reason that they transmit major diseases viz. malaria, dengue, chikungunya, zika, filariasis and various forms ofExpand
Laboratory Evaluation of Certain Essential Oils for Their Larvicidal Activity against Aedes Albopictus, Vector of Dengue and Chikungunya
Mosquito borne diseases including malaria, filariasis, dengue, chikungunya and various forms of encephalitis impose enormous menace to human as well as animals. These diseases cause large number ofExpand

Repellency of essential oils extracted from plants in Thailand against four mosquito vectors (Diptera: Culicidae) and oviposition deterrent effects against Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae).
The present study demonstrates the potential for using essential oils as mosquito repellents and oviposition deterrents and may lead to new and more effective strategies for protection from and control of mosquitoes. Expand
Repellency effect of forty-one essential oils against Aedes, Anopheles, and Culex mosquitoes
Five most effective oils were evaluated against the yellow fever mosquito, Aedes aegypti (Linnaeus), the malaria vector, Anopheles stephensi (Liston), and the filariasis and encephalitis vector, Culex quinquefasciatus (Say) (Diptera: Culicidae) using the skin of human volunteers to find out the protection time and repellency.

Mosquito (Diptera: Culicidae) Repellency Field Tests of Essential Oils from Plants Traditionally used in Laos
ABSTRACT Essential oils of Hyptis suaveolens (Lamiaceae), Croton roxburghii (Euphorbiaceae), and Litsea cubeba (Lauraceae) were tested in the field near Vientiane city, Lao PDR, on humans forExpand
Repellency of volatile oils from plants against three mosquito vectors.
The potential of volatile oils extracted from turmeric, citronella grass and hairy basil as topical repellents against both day- and night-biting mosquitoes is demonstrated. Expand
Forty‐two compounds in eleven essential oils elicit antennal responses from Aedes aegypti
42 components induced antennal responses in the essential oils of catnip, cinnamon, citronella, cumin, eucalyptus, geranium, ginger, melissa, peppermint, rosemary, and thyme are known insect repellent components, indicating that GC‐EAD screening of essential oils is a viable analytical technique to detect quantitatively minor constituents, which could be potent repellents when tested at an appropriate dose.

Field Evaluation of Traditionally Used Plant-Based Insect Repellents and Fumigants Against the Malaria Vector Anopheles darlingi in Riberalta, Bolivian Amazon
Plant-based repellents, although less effective than synthetic alternatives, were shown by focus groups to be more culturally acceptable in this setting, in particular para-menthane-3, 8, idol derived from lemon eucalyptus, Corymbia citriodora. Expand
Field efficacy of a new repellent, KBR 3023, against Aedes albopictus (SKUSE) and Culex quinquefasciatus (SAY) in a tropical environment.
Both the KBR 3023 and DEET formulations were found to be equally effective in providing a long-lasting reduction in human-mosquito contact in both the day and night field studies. Expand
Laboratory Evaluation of Mosquito Repellents Against Aedes albopictus, Culex nigripalpus, and Ochlerotatus triseriatus (Diptera: Culicidae)
Four synthetic mosquito repellents and eight natural (primarily plant extracts and/or essential oils) product-based repellent products were tested in the laboratory against Aedes albopictus Skuse, Culex nigripalpus Theobald, and Ochlerotatus triseriatus. Expand
Personal protection from mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) by burning neem oil in kerosene.
A 1% neem oil-kerosene mixture may provide economical personal protection from mosquito bites and reduced biting of human volunteers and catches of mosquitoes resting on walls in the rooms. Expand
Protective efficacy of menthol propylene glycol carbonate compared to N, N-diethyl-methylbenzamide against mosquito bites in Northern Tanzania
Results indicate that MR08 has a similar protective efficacy as DEET for personal protection outside bed nets when used singly and in blends, and the incorporation of these topical repellents for protection against insect bites can be of additional value in the absence or presence of IRS and ITNs coverage.
