Abstract

Repellant in humans are unattractive to a mosquito so that it will avoid areas of the body that have been treated with the produce. Repellant do not kill mosquitoes. The repellant will be provides protection from biting for a long period of time just one application. Essential oils from plants an provide the safe and biodegradable alternatives to synthetic repellants , but plant based repellant formulations available in the market are not effective. Though the essential oils are total protection against mosquito bite. The intervals between the time of repellent of application and the landing of first mosquito for biting is consider as the protection time. The protection time was recorded in essential oils like Nochi, Manathakali, Thuthuvalai, Arukampull, Thulasi, Neem, Kuppimani, Citrus,Curry, and Drumstick leaves it shows that there is a variation among them against the mosquito. Among these leaf extract of Neem , kuppaimeni, Arugampull,showed very effective when compared to other essential oils. However the neem showed more effective in indoor areas. From this investigation study found that neem (85,7%), citrus( 84%) , kuppaimeni(78.9%) exhibited more effective than the control . The result showed that the mean protection time against the mosquito bite was high in neem followed by Kuppaimeni with repellant in indoor and Neem proved to be efficacious among all essential oils. An insect repellant of plant origin is well defined and harmless to human and the non target. Thousands of plants have been tested as potential sources of insect repellants. Therefore usage of these repellants to control mosquito instead of synthetic insecticides could reduce the cost and environmental affects.
