It was concluded that there was an overall lethal effect of N. oleander extracts against mosquito, An. stephensi larvae which could be manipulated to develop a safe and effective larvicide.

These observations suggest some interesting growth-disrupting constituents in the plants, with possible application in the practical control of mosquito larvae in aquatic ecosystems.

Each data set analyzed separately yielded a different topology but none provided evidence for the separation of An. halophylus and An. triannulatus C, consistent with the hypothesis that the two are undergoing incipient speciation.
