ABSTRACT

One of the biggest health problems threatening the developing countries are mosquito borne diseases. Most of the time they are controlled by Larviciding process. Larviciding is an easiest way of reducing mosquito population at their place of breeding itself. The current study aims at exploring the larvicidal properties of aqueous extracts of leaves and flowers of Lantana camara Linn. The present study was carried out using 3rd and 4th instar larvae of Aedes aegypti. Lantana camara leaves and flowers aqueous extracts was prepared by cold process. The larvicidal assay was evaluated at 250, 500, 750, 1000 and 2000 μg/ml. The larvicidal potential was determined at 0, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 6th 12th and 24th hours and the percentage mortality was determined. Both the aqueous extracts had found to possess no larvicidal property. Thus, it can be concluded that, the aqueous extracts of leave and flower of Lantana camara Linn was not suitable for larvicidal action.

Keywords: Lantana camara, Mosquito, larvicidal and Aedes aegypti.
