We use the method of literature review. Our literature reveals that 68% of the 25 plants species are categorized as highly effective with LC50 <750 ppm. Jasmine, Zodia and Tobacco have the highest effectivity compared to the other plants use in this literature review. The LC 50 of these plants are 0.999 ppm, 1.94 ppm, and 1.94 ppmrespectively. All twenty five plants that we present suitable to be cultivated in the region of Indonesia with tropical climate so that people can easily cultivate and use it as a natural larvicides.
