 BMC to Test Oil to Kill Vector Larvae

The Haffkine Research Institute has received samples of various brands of oil used to kill mosquito larvae from the BMC.

The institute will check out the oils in order to test their efficacy. "After we get the test reports, we will procure the brand that is found to be the most effective in controlling larvae,'' Dr Arun Bamne, chief insecticide officer of the BMC told the Times of India.
