Abstract

DEVELOPMENT OF MOSQUITO REPELLENT FABRIC USING BAMBOO SHOOT AND NEEM EXTRACT

Sandeep Kidile* and Darshana Sharma

ABSTRACT

From centuries man has always concerned about his protection which then leads to number of developments in every field with regards to textile. Global warming is the cause of the distribution of mosquitoes which has expanded from tropical regions to northern latitudes and that leads to a spread in sources of viral infection from mosquitoes. Hence, personal protective measures must be taken to protect human from mosquito bites. The major tool in mosquito control operation was the application of synthetic insecticides. But this has not been very successful because it has harmful effect on human health i.e. unpleasant smell; oily feeling to some users and potential toxicity. Using natural plant products is a simple and sustainable method of mosquito control. Repellents of plant origin do not pose hazards of toxicity to human and domestic animals and are easily biodegradable. Enhancing the health and hygiene qualities of consumer product make it necessary to find a new ways of applications on textiles with medicinal plants. Bamboo shoot (slices) and Neem (leaf) methanol extract was used for mosquito repellent finish on woven cotton. Fabric was desised and mersarised (using NaOH). For mosquito repellent finishing both the extracts are used on the fabric through piece dye method. Treated samples were tested against mosquitoes for evaluating their efficacy and durability and compared using charts to get the most efficient mosquito repellent fabric.
