In this study larvicidal activity of extracted essential oil of Kelussia odoratissima (KO) and its major component i.e. Z-ligustilide (LIG) were evaluated against Anopheles stephensi and compared with together during May 2016. Yield of extraction of essential oil from KO was 0.1% from dried plants. Components of essential oil were identified by GC-MS analysis. Z-ligustilide (64.24%), 2-octen-1-ol acetate (7.17%), thymol (4.72%), E-ligustilide (4.42%) and eugenol (2.51%) were 5 major components of KO. Larvicidal tests were performed in line with WHO guideline. Calculated LC50 and 90% for LIG (i.e. 8.73 and 15.70 ppm) higher than total essential oil (i.e. KO: 4.77 & 8.44 ppm). Essential oil has more effective than its major components and beside that, has low cost and lower risk in occurrence of resistance in different population of mosquito larvae.
