Fig. 1.

Percent corrected mortality (mean ± S.D.) of Culex quinquefasciatus larvae bioassayed against selected microbial (A) and synthetic insecticides (B). Asterisk symbols indicate the significant difference among LC50 and LC90 values of microbial or synthetic insecticides due to non-overlapping of their C.I.

Fig. 2.

Percent corrected mortality (mean ± S.D.) of Culex quinquefasciatus larvae bioassayed against different concentrations of selected botanical extracts. Treatment means sharing different alphabets are significantly different from each other (one-way ANOVA; HSD at p ≤ 0.05).
