Objectives The goal of our project is to determine that banana peel and mint leaves can be used as an alternative component for making mosquito repellent floor wax. We are trying to prove that even waste materials can be used to prevent proliferation of dengue diseases. In this project we are also trying to create a less chemical yet effective floor wax for us to be able to protect our classmates/schoolmates from mosquitoes.

And our educational guests for that are the following: ➢ Null Hypothesis: ~banana peel and mint leaves extract will not be effective as mosquito repellent floor wax. ➢ Alternative/s: ~The more banana peels added to the mixture, the greater the friction. ~The more paraffin/candle wax added to the mixture, the greater the friction. ~The more kerosene added to the mixture, the lesser the friction.

Significance of the Study The Philippines is one of 4 countries in the Western Pacific which reported the highest dengue incidence in recent years. Last January 1 to August 8, 2015, MANILA, Philippines – The Department of Health (DOH) has recorded 55,079 suspected dengue cases.
