Avaliação do efeito repelente de extratos obtidos da vegetação de transição Cerrado-Caatinga contra Aedes aegypti
This work aimed to evaluate the repellency potential of plant species obtained from cerrado-caatinga, against Ae. aegypti cultivated in the laboratory. The repellent substances tested were the São Caetano Melão (Momordica charantia) and the Alho Bravo. We obtained in the results of repellency test with the Melon of São Caetano and Alho Bravo 29.6% and 32%, respectively. Considering these results, no repellency was observed for the extracts. However, further studies are needed to obtain new extracts as well as to analyze the repellent potential and the identification of the compound responsible.
