Problem what to study/ Find out:
How can we make an all-natural insect repellent which is affordable and environment-friendly.
It can kill insects/pest like cacroach, flies and mosquitoes. 2.)Objectives: To produce an insecticide that can effectively work on pest.
3.)Significance of the study
The researchers believe that this study is greatly significant in the lives of the Filipinos especially those who belong to the middle and lower classes. All-Natural Insect Repellent will greatly help in reducing cases of the disease and also in financial costs. In the Philippines today, money is
very valuable and often times, very limited, which results to lesser budget for unexpected emergencies. One example of this emergency is: infection of children due to exposure to mosquito bites. This is why the researchers want to do this study. In times of these emergencies, there is an effective alternative to prevent these infections that is less expensive than laboratory made medicines. This study will also educate Filipinos to learn to use alternative materials that will work as well as lab-made medicine, but in a much cheaper expense..
4.)Scope and Limitation: Suitable for insects like cacroach, flies and mosquitoes only.
