Abstract
Mosquitoes have been a constant problem in the community the continuously transmit serious diseases. The resistance of mosquitoes to conventional insecticides created an urgent need for using alternative insecticides. Protecting the environment from chemical hazards of synthetic insecticides a long with offering of new breading areas for vectors by urbanization indicate the trial of natural insecticides. Therefore, this study aimed to eliminate larvae of mosquitoes (culex pipiens) using different natural extracts isolated from vitex agnus castus-L varieties alba (vitex of white flower), vitex agnus castus-L (vitex of violet flower) and antheum graveolens (Dill). Results showed a statistically significantly effective in all difference concentrations used with all tested extracts
