Medicinal Plants as Potent Power for Malaria Control: Review

Mathalaimuthu Baranitharan, Vairakannu Tamizhazhagan, Kalimuthu Kovendan

Abstract


Mosquito vectors are living organisms that can transmit infectious diseases between human from animals to humans. It is bloodsucking insect that ingest disease-producing microorganisms during a blood meal from an infected host. This review aims to explain some medicinal plants that exhibit mosquitocidal agents on genus Anopheles mosquito species. Currently, the utilization of artificial chemicals to regulate insects and mosquitoes raises many considerations associated with environment and human health. Another aim is to use natural merchandise that possess sensible effectiveness, simple handiness, fewer adverse environmental impacts, and are environmentally friendly have crystal rectifier to the multiplied interest in plant origin chemical pesticides. It's supported original articles obtained by looking on major databases. Our literature review disclosed that 96 medicinal plants used in the all parts (leaves, root, bark and bud). This article envisaged to review the reports of ovicidal, oviposition deterrent, larvicidal, pupicidal and repellent activities, which might be employed in vector-borne disease management programs.
