Controlling Mosquito Populations Using Nanotechnology (Nanometric Emulsion)

The research focused on formulating the bio-based nanopesticide which can efficiently control the vector mosquito population, simultaneously exhibiting an environmentally benign property.  The rising jeopardy of vector-borne diseases and the residual eco-pollution in current scenario due to excessive application of conventional pesticidal compounds makes the application of nanotechnological techniques. The present research dealt with one
