A research on mosquito repellent and larvicidal activity of NEMCAM (Azadirachta indica and Cinnamomum camphora)

Author(s): Sana Tabassum, R Sharadha, M Revan Siddappa and Dr. K Abbulu
Abstract: The present research focuses on development of NEMCAM (NEMCAM=Neem oil, Azadirachta indica and Camphor, Cinnamomum camphora) formulation and determining it’s mosquito repellent and larvicidal activity by various methods. Arena ring test was performed for prepared five different test formulations (TF-1 to TF-5) and compared with that of standard (Citronella oil). Distribution of mosquitoes was observed for 2hrs at a time interval of 10 minutes and % mortality rate was calculated. The results were tabulated and ANOVA was applied. NEMCAM Bio-Out was done and effectiveness of mosquito repellent activity was checked and compared with that of All-Out. By performing Ex-cito chamber test, % Mosquito repellency was calculated. Larvicidal activity was determined by observing larvae motility. Based on the results, it was fairly concluded that NEMCAM formulation possess mosquito repellent and larvicidal activity.
