HOW TO PREVENT AEDES AGYPTY USING
GLIRICIDIA SEPIUM LEAVES
Gliricidia Sepium(kakawate) is plant that
can repel mosquitoes. Gliricidia sepium is a
medium-sized tree and can grow to from
10 to 12 meters high. Each leaf is
composed of leaflets that are about 2 to
7 cm long and 1 to 3 cm wide.
Our objective is to prove that
kakawate can kill mosquiitoes and
to prove that it not only a natural
STATEMENTS OF THE PROBLEM
- Can kakawate kills mosquito?
- What is the chemical composition
why mosquito hate kakawate?
- Is it safe to our health?
- Is it really effective?
Kakawate can kills a
mosquito because of the
smell of kakawate
SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
It can kill many mosquitoes. It is
helpful to humans and animals
because it can prevent dengue
SCOPE AND LIMITATION
The leaves, seeds or powdered
bark are toxic to humans when
mixed with cooked rice
or maize and fermented.
Mosquitoes die because of the chemical
component of kakawate called Coumarin.
Coumarin is a fragrant organic chemical
compound in the benzopyrone chemical class,
which is a colorless crystalline substance in
its standard state. It is a natural substance
found in many plants.
