ABSTRACT
Present study assessed the role of larvicidal efficacy of different solvents of Azadirachitin and Turpentine oil against the larvae of Aedes. Twenty five third instar larvae of each species were exposed in 50ppm, 75ppm and100ppm solutions, mortality was observed after 24 hrs and noticed carefully with different concentrations. Cent percent mortality was observed with100ppm solutions of the solution of Azadirachtin (Alcoholic sol.) and turpentine oil (Ether sol.). These were assayed in entomological laboratory. The larval mortality was calculated and corrected by Abbott’s formula in both control and treated solution.

Key words : Abbott’s Formula, Auto-disposable syringe, Azadirachitin, Ether Methanol, Turpentine oil.
