|Abstract:||An investigation of the biological effect of catnip oil (Nepeta cataria L.) on the behavioral response of field collected Aedes aegypti and Anopheles harrisoni was conducted using an automated excito-repellency test system. Aedes aegypti showed significantly higher escape rates from the contact chamber at 5 catnip oil compared to other concentrations (P < 0.05). With Anopheles harrisoni, a high escape response was seen at 2.5 catnip oil from the contact chamber, while in the noncontact chamber a higher escape response was observed at a concentration of 5. Results showed that this compound exhibits both irritant and repellent actions. © 2008 by The American Mosquito Control Association, Inc.|
