Effect of Ethanolic and Chloroform Extracts of Lantana Camara Flowers on the Second Instar Stage of Anopheles Mosquito Larvae
Keywords:Anopheles Mosquito, Insecticides, Instar Stages, Lantana camara
In addition to environmental degradation and financial issues due to their high cost, the use of synthetic pesticides, particularly insecticides, has led to ecological issues such pest tolerance to chemicals, a return of pests, and harm to human and animal health. Natural goods are a safer and more environmentally friendly option that has minimal or no mammalian toxicity. Wide-ranging testing is being done on numerous plant items for their potential as repellents. Plant products have insecticidal properties because they include secondary metabolites. Given its potential for commercial use, the plant merits further examination. Given their effectiveness against them and ease of biodegradability, several botanicals are increasingly emerging as a feasible component in parasite management techniques. In the current investigation, the plant Lantana camara’s larvicidal activity has been selected and investigated and given its potential for commercial use, the plant merits further examination.
