History of Article:
The efficancy of synthetic insecticides in vector control has been reduced. This leads to the search of insecticides of botanical origin which can serve as a suitable alternative biocontrol technique. Many plants have been reported to have mosqitocidal activity but only few have been used in the field. Since the plants are not clearly characterized and active principles for mosquitocidal activity are not determined properly. There is a need for the development of new botanical insecticids. In our present work Acalypa fruricosa and Andrographis peniculata as thoroughly studied Keywards: Larvicidal, Acalypha fruticosa, Andrographis peniculata;
Synergetic activity studied both in current effective pesticides and phytochemicals provides a power ful tool the development of insect control various reasons. People in all over the world suffer strategies (Bernard and Philogene 1993). Alkaloid from malaria, dengue, yellow fever, encephalitis, like nicotine anabasin methyl anabasin and lupinine Filariasis which was caused by mosquitoes. A isolated from Russian weed also reported for mosquito has ability to act as vector pathogens and mosquito control (Sukumar et al., 1993). The cause these diseases (WHO 1998, 1997; Shope primary aim of the current study evaluates the 1997). Hence an integrated vector control programne synergistic action of Indian medicinal plants against is essential. Though chemical control act as effective culex quinguefasciatus, the filarial vector of india it can be a tempory solution to the outbreak of diseases and the over use of chemical control oftenleads to resistance to these chemicals.This situationbrings attention to the researchers to focus on the MATERIALS AND METHODS
development of botanical insecticides. Insecticidalactivity of different plants has been studied by many Collection of Plant material
scientists in different parts of the world. Phytoextracts have been successfully tested for various biocontrol programs (Markouk et al., 2000; Jeyabalan et al., 2003; Sharma et al., 2004; Medicinal Plant Garden at Sri Sairam Siddha Choochote et al.,2004; Sharma et al., 2006).

Larvicidal test
Preliminary screening
Methods for testing larvicidal action of the crude extracts were slightly modified from those of peniculata plant alkaloid extracts exhibited high World Health Organization (WHO, 1996). A stock toxicity with a more than 60% mortality rate at the solution was prepared by dissolving a known amount fourth instar larvae stage in a concentration of of the crude extract in an appropriate solvent and 20μl/ml at the 48 h after treatment. point. Solanum stored in a refrigerator at 15oC. Twenty healthy, late villosum berry extract signify that the mortality rates 3rd-4th instar larvae were introduced into each at a 0.5% concentration were highest with all testing cup (sterilized plastic drinking cup of 150 ml concentrations of the aqueous extracts tested for capacity), which contained 100 ml of dechlorinated larval mortality and it was considerably higher tap water.

As very few larvae succumbed within 24 S.villosum exhibited potential biocontrol agent aginst hours of exposure to the test solutions, mortality was S.aegypti (Nandita Chowdhury et al., 2010). The recorded after 48 hour of exposure, during which no extract or isolated bioactive phytochemical from the food was offered to the larvae.

Control mortality was accounted for by the formula of Abbott activities against the larvae of all the tested mosquito species. The regression parameters of probit analysisand LC50 for mortality of the larvae were presented Data analysis of mortality response

The results of the bioassay of different ratios of alkaoid extract of Acalypha formulations were analyzed by Probit Analysis fruticosa and Andrographis peniculata combined (Finney 1971). The corrected percent mortality was against Cx. Quinquefasciatus larvae.

Acalypha fruticosa and Andrographis peniculata were 0.0089 and 0.0081 ppm after 24 and 48 h of Andrographis peniculata offers promised as a treatment, respectively and for the ratio of 1:3 were 0.0097 and 0.0088 ppm. after 24 and 48 h of quinquefasciatus mainly in its markedly larvicidal treatment, and the ratio of 1:4 were 0.0114 and 0.109 ppm. All fractions of S. xanthocarpum demonstrated phytochemical from the plant could be used in appreciable larvicidal activity after 24 and 48 h post stagnant water bodies which are known to be the treatment. The alkaloid extract showed greater breeding grounds for mosquitoes. However, further larvicidal activity. Corbel et al., 2003 identified studies on the identification of the active principals Positive synergism between permethrin and propoxur involved and their mode of action and field trials are against Cx. quinquefasciatus larvae. When the binary needed to recommend Acalypha fruticosa and mixture was applied, the LC50 co-toxicity coefficient Andrographis peniculata as an anti-mosquito product of 2.2 indicated synergism between the two used to combat and protect from vector in a control insecticides. Comparison of the observed and interaction across a wide range of concentrations, theeffect being inversely proportional to mixtureconcentration.
