Abstract: Malaria is a serious public health problem in the tropics. This study, investigated the mosquito repellent effect of the plant Azadirachta indica extracts of the seed kernel and fruit bark on human volunteers. Two different mosquito species were used, female anopheles and culex . It was observed that the fruit bark exhibited slight repellent activity, significant at p<0.05 for the number of bites between 0-60 minutes by culex mosquitoes. The seed kernel extract exhibited significant repellent activity, significant at p<0.01 and also the extract was more effective on the female anopheles than on the culex mosquito species.
