Larvicidal and pupicidal activities of Solonum pseudocapsicum fruits compunds against Aedes aegypti, Anopheles stephensi and Culex quinquefasciatus (Diptera: Culicidae).

The aim of this research was to determine the chemical composition and insecticidal activity of ethyl acetate extracts of S. pseudocapsicum fruits parts against the Aedes aegypti, Anopheles stephensi and Culex quinquefasciatus. The maximum larval and pupal mortality was observed in ethyl acetate extracts of S. pseudocapsicum fruits parts respectively. Ethyl acetate extracts of S. pseudocapsicum fruits parts were obtained from hydrodistillation and investigated by GC and GC-MS. A total of 47 components of the ethyl acetate extracts of S. pseudocapsicum fruits parts were identified, respectively. The principal compounds in S. pseudocapsicum fruits parts were n-Propyl acetate, 1,2,3-Propanetriol, monoacetate, Tetradecanoic acid, 1,2,3-Propanetriol, 1-acetate, Triacetin, 9-Hexadecenoic acid, n-Hexadecanoic acid, 9,12-Octadecadienoic acid (Z,Z), methyl ester. The results indicated that this compounds of n-Propyl acetate, 1,2,3-Propanetriol, monoacetate, Tetradecanoic acid, 1,2,3-Propanetriol, 1-acetate, Triacetin, 9-Hexadecenoic acid, n-Hexadecanoic acid, 9,12-Octadecadienoic acid (Z,Z)-, methyl ester show potential in to serve as an alternate botanical mosqticide in the management of Aedes aegypti, Anopheles stephensi and Culex quinquefasciatus.
