- ... Biological control at the larval stages of development of mosquitoes is one of the techniques that afford a non-expensive, easy-to-use, and environment-friendly method for mosquito control. In this study, investigations were undertaken on microbial product to develop a strategy to control mosquito larval and pupal population in the lab and field. Highest larval mortality was evident in the lab wit ...

- ... Alternative control technologies envisioned for the dengue vector Aedes aegypti L. (Diptera: Culicidae) include botanical insecticides, which are believed to pose little threat to the environment or to human health and may provide a practical substitute for synthetic insecticides. In this study, we determined the biological activity of methanol extracts of the leaves of Acalypha indica L. (Euphorb ...

- ... The present study explored the effects of Jatropha curcas leaf extract and Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis larvicidal activity against the lymphatic filarial vector, Culex quinquefasciatus. Wights were selected for investigating the larvicidal potential against the first to fourth instar larvae of the laboratory-reared mosquito species, C. quinquefasciatus Say, in which the major lymphatic fila ...
