Abstract:
Over the years, mosquitoes have developed a resistance to synthetic household pesticides, and this caused a significant decline in standard protocols against vector-borne diseases, forcing the rest of the world to create alternative solutions. In response to the growing need for environmentally friendly alternatives for synthetic insecticides, this review was initiated to collect a valid information to authenticate and support the claims of the effectiveness of garlic (Allium sativum) as a toxic agent against common mosquito species. The gathered data showed that garlic possess toxic characteristics needed against mosquitoes, even at lower concentrations. The researchers concluded that garlic is undoubtedly potent against Anopheles and Culex spp. and could be a significant ingredient in future plant-based pesticides. These findings suggest the application of garlic in pest management and vector control programs.
