Chromolaena odarata linn is considered an environmental weed that is traditionally used as a treatment of numerous environmental conditions such as wound healing functions and amelioration of inflammation. In this study, chromolaena odarata linn was discovered as an alternative and natural product of mosquitocide. Based on the results gathered and obtained the stem, leaves, and roots are proven to be effective to use rather than using only one part of the plant. Furthermore, the data gathered shows that it only took a small amount of time to kill the mosquito using all parts of the Chromolaena odorata linn extract. The mosquitocidal activity of Chromolaena odarata linn had shown its potential significance, eco-friendly, and cost-effective with the presence of botanical phytochemicals (alkaloids, cardiac glycosides, anthocyanin, tannin, and flavonoids) as a source of controlling the mosquito population.
