An experiment was carried out on “evaluating larvicidal action of Coriandrum sativum (Dhania) and Mentha (Mint) plant extracts against Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus Larvae”. Rural areas of Islamabad i-e Rumli, Bari-Iman, Karlot, Barakahu and Rawal town were selected for vector collection. Aedes aegypti, vector of dengue belongs to class insecta, Order Diptera and Culicidae family. Aedesrnalbopictus is vector of dengue and also found in Pakistan. Mentha (Mint) was found to be more efficient as it starts showing mortality at 10%. A significant mortality was observed at 10 to 15% concentrations, followed by complete mortality at subsequent concentrations as compared to Coriandrum sativum (Dhania). No significant mortality was observed at 15% concentration of Coriandrum sativum (Dhania) plant extract but it was observed at 20% concentration. This study intends to evaluate larvicidal action of Coriandrum sativum (Dhania) and Mentha (Mint) plant extracts against Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus Larvae.
