Mosquito larvicidal and pupicidal activity of South peninsular coast sponge Dendrilla nigra extracts


Priya L, S Jawahar, Huxley VAJ

Mosquito downside has become acute in recent years and lots of programmes are launched to manage these vectors. The utilization of biologically active plant materials with anti-larval properties has attracted hefty interest of scientists everywhere the globe. during this background, this study was undertaken to analyze the larvicidal and pupicidal potential of marine sponge Dendrilla Negro extracts against the dipteron species Aedes aegypti, genus Anopheles stephensi and Culex quinquefasciatus. By victimization 3 completely different solvent extracts (aqueous, acetone and methanol), LC50 and LC90 values were observed and therefore the pupae mortality was also analyzed. The results showed that the alcohol extract of sponge exhibited high degree of obstruction the event by induction of nice mortality of larvae and pupae. These findings might facilitate in developing a prospective various supply to manage the mosquitoes
