The Aedes aegypti is the main arbovirus vector. Synthetic chemicals compounds used continuously and incorrectly, generate man intoxication and resistance in insect. Products based on the secondary metabolites of plants with insecticidal and/or repellent activity are alternatives. City Barra-Ba, located in the Cerrado/Caatinga area, has a biome not yet studied. Six plant species were selected, extracts and essential oils were obtained in order to produce insecticides and repellents.
