Abstract:

Mosquito-borne diseases pose significant public health challenges worldwide, emphasizing the urgent need for effective mosquito control measures. Traditional methods of mosquito repellency, particularly those utilizing medicinal plants, have gained attention due to their perceived safety, accessibility, and eco-friendliness. This review aims to consolidate existing literature on the efficacy of medicinal plants as traditional mosquito repellents, highlighting their active constituents, mode of action, and potential for integration into modern vector control strategies. A comprehensive search of scientific databases was conducted, identifying relevant studies published up to [insert date]. The review discusses key medicinal plants known for their mosquito-repelling properties, evaluates their effectiveness based on experimental evidence, and explores mechanisms underlying their repellent activity. Furthermore, challenges and opportunities associated with the utilization of medicinal plants in mosquito control are discussed, along with future research directions to optimize their efficacy and practical application.
