Author(s): Suraj Chetri, Lupamudra Borah, Sasanka Sekhar Ghosh, Rezina Ahmed and Parag Deka
Abstract: Culex is a genus of mosquitos responsible for the transmission of various vector-borne diseases in humans. They spread diseases like Japanese encephalitis, West Nile fever, St. Louis encephalitis, Filariasis, etc. The present study focuses on the larvicidal activity of botanical products in the control of these disease vectors. Azadirachta indica (Neem) and Curcuma longa (Turmeric) are used for the in-silico analysis of their action as larvicides. The larvicidal activity of the test extracts are also studied through larval toxicity tests. A comparative analysis of the results is prepared to understand the effect of Neem and Turmeric in the biocontrol of the target species.
