İnternational İnsect Repellent

Topic: Health
Media Type: Presentation
Problem state:
As a problem reported by our students who are originating from Africa. Our school is an international school. They clearly stated that their we can find a solution for flies and insect which cause diseases and many families find a hard time to get a remedy for this situation.
Purpose:
We have seen that the fly drugs used today are harmful and expensive. In the literature, we noticed that in the rural area, especially on the basil leaves, When we ask our dearest, he directed us to these vegetable oils.
Process:
To get the orange oil ourselves, we chopped the oranges we took from our meals and put them in the alcohol solution. We extracted orange oil by extraction method. We got help from our biology colleagues to train ourselves. We put orange, lemon, apple pieces in front of the laboratory glass (we chose red apples) We waited for the flies to come and lay. When we did this process in February, our flies could not reproduce. We tried to solve them on the flies we caught on it.

SOLUTIONS USED:

1: 50 ml almond oil +10 ml of ethyl alcohol
2: 50 ml basil oil +10 ml of ethyl alcohol
3: 50 ml orange oil +10 ml of ethyl alcohol
4: 50 ml geranium oil+ 10 ml of ethyl alcohol
5: 25 ml basil oil + 25 ml orange oil+ 10 ml of ethyl alcohol

Control Group: Pure ethyl alcohol solution

From these solutions we poured 10 drops of drip onto the filter paper and put it in the empty beaker where the flies were found. And we recorded the time.
20 seconds in the orange oil,
25 seconds in geranium oil
30 seconds in basil oil
We realized that it was killing the flies.
We tried mixing the orange and basil oil together. We realized that it was killing the flies in about 15 seconds.

After we saw that we were successful, we had 2 bottles of water bottles of 5 liters in the hobby garden of our school. We put meat and orange pieces in these bottles. We opened the door. After 10 days, our flies multiplied. We tried these herbal solutions on them again. We calculated the volume of the empty aquarium. The volume of the aquarium was 0.6365m3, the volume of the beergar was 0.000105m3. We used two drops of solution for beergar. For the aquarium, it would be sufficient to use a solution containing 121 drops of orange and basil oil.

CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATIONS:
The most effective solution we did was an orange-basil mixture. It can also be used in areas where our body is open as a lotion. Oranges are products produced in abundant quantities in our basil country. We can get 2 liras from the orange market, 5 liras from the bloom. It will be more economical than oil to buy orange oil for ourselves for 15 liras.

The products we use do not harm the environment and people. It does not smell as bad as most flies in the market. It has a nice and refreshing smell.

We see that there are many damages when we read the information on the chemical fly drugs. But our product is completely and totally organic, there is no harm.

Extensibility:
When our African friends return home for summer vacation, they will be able to take these medicines with them and try them there. And they will share the results with us when they return.
