CHAPTER III

METHODOLOGY

A. Materials

The materials needed in the production of Lansium Domesticum (Lanzones) as

Mosquito Killer are 15g of cornstarch, 200mm x 250mm of aluminum foil, 15g of

sundried lanzones peelings, coil, mortar and pestle, basin container, food coloring

(optional), 15ml of water and measuring cups.

B. Methods

In making Lansium Domesticum (Lanzones) as Mosquito Killer, the cut lanzones

peelings were dried for three (3) to five (5) days or until fully dried. These were pulverized

using mortar and pestle. The powder was mixed with cornstarch. After mixing thoroughly

was added. Mix the mixture very well until it turns sticky. The mixture was poured in a

molder to shape it like a coil. This was dried under the heat of the sun for twenty-four (24)

to forty-eight (48) hours.

C. Experimental Set-Up

The independent variable is the lanzones peelings, and dependent variable is the

number of mosquitos that place in three (3) boxes.

D. Data Gathering Procedure

The researchers put a coil in the Box A where there are ten (10) mosquitoes, while

in the Box B they also put a coil in the middle where there are now fifteen (15) mosquitoes.

In the Box C the researchers put twenty (20) mosquitoes.

E. Sample & Sample Procedure

1. Make sure the lanzones peelings were sun dried for a few days.

2. When fully dried pulverize using mortar and pestle.

3. Mix and equal amount of starch and pulverized lanozanes peelings.

4. Add water to make paste like. Mix thoroughly.

5. Now, get the commercial mosquito coil and with the foil, make a mold.

6. Pour and mixed the starch and lanzones into the mold and let the mixture dry. You

now have a mosquito coil.

If your KATOL does not burn properly you could increase the ratio of pulverized

lanzones.
The sample we worked mostly with is the lanzones peelings. It is said that lanzones

peelings have properties that help repel mosquitos, making it suitable to make as mosquito

coil. The lanzones peeling when dried under the sun, it turns from light brown into deep

brown in color. It also turned crispy making it easier to pulverize.

Cornstarch was used to make the consistency of the paste thicker. Its color is white

and when mixed with pulverized lanzones peelings that color disappears, and it makes the

paste thick. We gathered the materials by assigning it among the members. The lanzones

was brought by volunteer member and the others paid for the expenses. The other materials

were assigned by the leader of the group for the members to bring.

The researchers collected the data through searching in different resources like

books and internet. Organize them by the data they collected like what are the right tools

or ingredient to be use in the experiment proper. And record it by following the procedures

exactly the way it is was written.

There are lot of ways to interpret the data. The researchers analyzed and interpreted

the data through useful and through reading to understand it. Once they understand and

interpreted the researchers use on hand talked about the factors that should be taken notice

of, like quantity, the quality, and the like. They able to connect the dots and produce useful

information that can help them in conducting the experiment. The researchers know

through the gathered, analyzed, and interpreted data they can give the best result and make

this experiment happen.
