Lousicidal activity of synthesized silver nanoparticles using Lawsonia inermis leaf aqueous extract against Pediculus humanus capitis and Bovicola ovis.In the present work, we describe inexpensive, nontoxic, unreported and simple procedure for synthesis of silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) using leaf aqueous extract of Lawsonia inermis as eco-friendly reducing and capping agent. The aim of the present study was to assess the lousicidal activity of synthesized Ag NPs against human head louse, Pediculus humanus capitis De Geer (Phthiraptera: Pediculidae), and sheep body louse, Bovicola ovis Schrank (Phthiraptera: Trichodectidae).

resistance and the control of lice on humans and production animals.phthiraptera (lice) are specialised insects adapted to parasitise many warm-blooded vertebrates, including domestic animals and humans. often, attempts by the host to alleviate the irritation created by lice, causes derangement of the hair/fur coat. unless treated, this derangement may cause economic losses due to hide damage and/or downgrading of wool/hair/fur. in 1981, application of aqueous insecticide solutions (dipping) for the control of sheep body lice (bovicola ovis) was largely supersed ...200010719122
