What is the chemical content of pomelo peelings that can kill mosquitoes?

Ad

Pomelo is a fruit in the Citrus family. The Global Journal of Science Frontier Research Interdisciplinary published a study by Effiom, O. E. Avoaja D. A , & Ohaeri, C. C. that showed how citrus repels mosquitoes. The active ingredients believed to do this in the phytochemical compound are alkaloids, flavonoids, saponins, phenolics, and tannins. These do not kill mosquitoes but do repel a percentage of them. The study showed that the higher concentration of citrus oil from the peels worked the best. It tricks the mosquito into not smelling anything. Much like when you peel an orange and get the oil off the skin on your hands or up your nose. You will notice a difference in smells or sensation for a short period of time.
