1. Introduction and Its Background
The pesticide property of chili makes it a good basis for making this spice a good mosquito killer. Added with kamias and its chemical properties, a potent mosquito killer can be produced.
2. Statement of the Problem
This study aims the following:

i. This mosquito killer is effective when used.
ii. The production of this mosquito killer is more economical compared to the commercially prepared ones.
4. Significant of the Study
This study was made to prove that both chili and kamias can be combined to make a potent and effective mosquito killer. Given the fact that we have abundant resources of these two spices, any ordinary person can formulate and produce this natural insecticide. Best of all, its’ cheap, economical and proven effective and safe.
5. Scope and Delimitation of the Study
The scope of this study is based on the formulation and application of both chili and kamias extracts to mosquitoes.
