ABSTRACT
The study has been made against the larvae of Anopheles vector of malaria, Aedes; vector of chikungunya and dengue and Culex; vector of filariasis and Japanees encephalitis. Indiscriminate use of synthetic insecticides as Abate, Functional and immunohistochemical characterization of CCEae3a, a carboxylesterase associated with temephos resistance in the major arbovirus vectors Aedes aegypti and albopictus studied8 and Mosquito (Aedes taeniorhynchus) resistance to methoprene in an isolated habitat the resistant among adult mosquito and its larvae Transcriptome profiling and genetic study reveal amplified carboxylesterase genes implicated in temephos resistance, in the Asian tiger mosquito, Aedes albopictus..Therefore; it’s our intuition to use the plants extracts for making pollution free environment and wellbeing for human health. In this study, antilarval activities were studied using turpentine oil solution with methanol and ether. The bioassay has been made with the third / early fourth instars larvae of each mosquito genera These were exposed in control solution and treated also with the turpentine solution 50ppm, 75ppm and 100ppm, to check the mortality interval after 24 hrs. The bioassay test has been made for the first time to know the anti larval efficacy and mortality was calculated and corrected by Abbott’s formula.

Key words : Abbott’s formula, Auto-disposable syringe, Ether, Methanol, Micro pipette, Turpentine oil.
