dc.description.abstract Mosquitoes are the crucial vectors for a number of mosquito-borne infectious diseases i.e. dengue, yellow fever, chikungunya, malaria, Rift Valley fever, elephantiasis, Japanese Encephalitis, and Murray Valley encephalitis etc. Besides, they also transmit numerous arboviruses (arthropod-borne viruses) for example West Nile virus, Saint Louis encephalitis virus, Eastern equine encephalomyelitis virus, Everglades virus, Highlands J virus, and La Crosse Encephalitis virus. The emergence of widespread insecticide resistance and the potential environmental issues associated with some synthetic insecticides (such as DDT) has indicated that additional approaches to control the proliferation of mosquito population would be an urgent priority research. The present review highlights some natural product mosquitocides that are target-specific, biodegradable, environmentally safe, and botanicals in origin. en_US
