4DescriptionAbstract Mosquito control has relied solely on the eradication of adult mosquitoes by the spraying of aerosol under closed doors and windows. Apart from the toxicity of the aerosol, this method has been found ineffective because mosquitoes are becoming resistant to these insecticides. Herein, adequate and effective method of mosquito control was investigated towards the elimination of mosquito at the larva stage by spraying oil mixtures on the aqueous breeding sites. These oil mixtures acting as larvicides: 'malaroil' was observed in this study to kill the larvae in the aquatic habitat by asphyxia within twenty minutes of application. The thermodynamic parameters of such oil blends were identified for domestic application for control of mosquito and its concomitant diseases.
