Table 2 General insecticidal activity (median % of mortality) effect of the crude skin secretions of Leptodactylus knudseni (Anura: Lepdodactylidae) and Phyllomedusa vaillantii (Anura: Hylidae) against Anopheles darlingi and Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae)

From: Insecticidal activity of Leptodactylus knudseni and Phyllomedusa vaillantii crude skin secretions against the mosquitoes Anopheles darlingi and Aedes aegypti

Anura species Adult Larvae
An. darlingi Ae. aegypti An. darlingi Ae. aegypti
L. knudseni 65.3a1 56.0b1 86.0c1 58.7d1
P. vaillantii 61.3a2 58.7a2 68.0b2 58.7a1
  1. Kruskal-Wallis and Student-Newman-Keuls Tests (comparisons). Medians were calculated using mortalities from different concentrations (1-100 ppm) after 24 hours. Different numbers indicate significant (p < 0.05) differences in the same column. Different letters indicate significant (p < 0.05) differences in the same row.
