ABSTRACT
The present study assessed the role of larvicidal efficacy in different solvents of turpentine oil against the larvae of Aedes albopictus Skuse (Figure-01), the vector of Chickenguniya and Dengue. Twenty five third instar larvae of Aedes albopictus Skuse were exposed to 10ppm, 50ppm and100ppm solutions of turpentine oil with alcohol and ether. These were assayed in entomological laboratory. The larval mortality was observed after 8, 16 and 24 hrs alternatively. It was calculated and corrected by Abbott’s formula and the number of larval mortality was observed in controls. Values were observed with different concentrations.

Key words : Abbott’ s Formula, Alcohol, Auto­disposable syringe, Ether, Turpentine oil.
