Abstract:

The aim of this study is to evaluate larvicidal activityof Trigonella foenum and Nerium oleander against mosquito and to test their activity in combination with each other. Mosquito, the primary vector for malaria, dengue and other severe infectious diseases are the major problem in Vellore city. Survey on the prevalence of mosquitoes present in Vellore city and the larvicidal activity of Trigonella foenum and Nerium oleander leaf extracts on the different mosquito larvae were studied. Further we studied the larvicidal effect of the combination of both the plant extracts. The results showed that, there are four genera of mosquitoes present in Vellore city and the leaf extract of both the above plants contains larvicidal activity for the most available genera in the survey, and the combination of the extracts, increased the activity considerably to a high percent.
