According to Wikipedia, durian is the fruit of several tree species belonging to the genus Durio. There are 30 recognized Duriospecies, at least nine of which produce edible fruit. Durio zibethinus is the only species available in the international market: other species are sold in their local regions. Regarded by many people in Southeast Asia as the “king of fruits”, the durian is distinctive for its large size, strong odor, and formidable thorn-covered husk. The fruit can grow as large as 30 centimeters (12 in) long and 15 centimeters (6 in) in diameter, and it typically weighs one to three kilograms (2 to 7 lb). Its shape ranges from oblong to round, the color of its husk green to brown, and its flesh pale yellow to red, depending on the species. Background of the study

And now the rainy season has begun, dengue will be a major problem in our community. This chart of dengue cases was from 2011 to 2013.
No. of Dengue cases from 2011 to 2013

That’s why I and my group mates had decided to make a research about durian as a mosquito repellent.

Significance of the study

According to a blog post at HubPages, if durian smell is not a problem, you can also use durian husks as a natural mosquito repellent. In some areas in the country people put some husks in a basket and place it in the corner. Change them regularly to get effective result specially when you think the husks start to produce unwanted odor, you can change them with new ones. Skin of durian can be utilized as a mosquito repellent drug, to deal with a rash onto the skin (scab) as well as bowel problems (constipation). This uncommon fruit skin was burned along with the ashes utilized in potions for the launch period. Besides durian skin can be used like the ashes of the good scrub, dry manner dried up as well as burnt to pieces.(HealthBenefitstimes.com)
