The general effect of cumin in repellent power effect was higher than Fennel repellent power effect with an average -142.45 , -112.67 respectively , the result also showed that cumin hexan extract caused the higher repellent power effect -146 while Fennel hexan extract scored the lower repellent power effect -111.23 .
