Laboratory evaluation of neem-seed extract against larvae of the cabbage looper and beet armyworm (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)

Laboratory evaluation of neem-seed extract against larvae of the cabbage looper and beet armyworm (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)

Journal of Economic Entomology 79(1): 39-41

Incorporation of an extract of neem (Azadirachta indica) seeds into an artificial diet to give concentrations of 0.02, 0.2 and 2.0% (w/v) prolonged development and induced mortality in all larval instars of Trichoplusia ni and Spodoptera exigua. Only one non-reproductive adult female of T. ni was produced when 50 fifth-instar larvae were exposed to the diet containing the lowest concentration of the extract.
