|Abstract:||The vector-borne diseases (VBDs), malaria, filariasis, Japanese encephalitis, dengue, etc., are increasing and have been spreading to newer areas recently due to the increased risk of transmission fuelled by developmental activities, demographic changes and introduction of new products. All over the world, more than 50% of persons with filariasis receive their infections from the bites of mosquitoes, particularly Culex quinquefasciatus (Say). This species of mosquito and the incidence of filariasis are quite abundant in India, particularly in Chidambaram town of Tamil Nadu. Natural products are generally preferred because of their less harmful nature to non-target organisms and due to their innate biodegradability.|
