  Environmental pollution and its impact on human being have well   recognized during few decades. The

  role of air pollutants causing health hazards substances are   distributed widely in ecosystems due to

  diverse human activities. Mosquito coils are widely used as   mosquito repellent. The major active

  ingredients of most mosquito coil are pyrethrins. The combustion   of mosquito coils generates large

  amounts of sub-micrometer particles and gaseous pollutants. These   particles and cause the potential

  toxicological effects of the smoke on mammals. This study   therefore aims to investigate the toxicological

  effects of mosquito coil smoke in rats with hope that the results   would provide a guide line for proper use

  of these coils
