Abstract: The attempt was made to evaluate the effect of mosquito repellent i.e odomos on the development of chick embryo under laboratory conditions.There are several species of insect which cause problem of human health directly and indirectly. It can be controlled by chemical such as DDT, B.H.C etc. In the present endeavour we try to evaluate the effect of N, N Dimethyl benzamide which is component of mosquito repellent.The compound has adverse effect on various stage of chick development. Tachycardia and Micosomia are major deformities observed due to N, N Dimethyl benzamide.The compound was found to certain abnormalities seen in the development of embryo. The characteristics deformities during this study have been co-related with the result which we obtain from current investigation. The continuous use of odomos may lead to undesirable consequence in vertebrates. According to us the best option to get rid of mosquito bite is to use the mosquito net.
