Abstract

This research looked at how well tea-tree oil was able to kill the larvae of Aedes albopictus Skuse, the mosquito that spreads Chickenguniya and Dengue. Twenty Aedes albopictus Skuse instar larvae were subjected to tea-tree oil solutions containing 30 ppm, 50 ppm, and 100 ppm in both alcohol and ether. In an entomological testing facility, these were analyzed. Mortality in the larval stage was recorded at 8, 16, and 24 hours. Abbott's method was used to correct the number, and control groups were used to determine the mortality rate of larvae. Concentration-dependent values were measured.
