METHODOLOGY
Materials:

· Blender
· Spray bottle
· Used Cloth
· Plastic containers
· Knife
· Garlic
· Lemongrass
· Grater

· Measuring cup

General Procedure
Preparation of the Solution
Materials were first gathered before the conduct of the experiment Cymbopogon citratus and Allium sativum were extracted using a used cloth. The extract of each ingredient was stored for two days. Then, both ingredients were measured to the desired amount. The set up was composed of 20 mL Cymbopogon citratus extract and 20 ML Allium sativum extract. Application of the Solution

After preparing the experimental set up, the solution was being sprayed on the container with mosquitoes. Each set up was composed of two trials. The time it took before the mosquitoes died was observed and recorded
