Cyclopicidal activity of three indigenous plant extracts



Cyclopicidal activity of three indigenous plant extracts



Insect Science & its Application 9(2): 211-212



The seed oils (petroleum ether extract) of three plants, Azadirachta indica, Annona squamosa and Pongamia pinnata were tested against the cyclops, Mesocyclops leukarti sensu lato. Out of the seed oils tested, oil of Pongamia pinnata produced excellent cyclopicidal action followed by Annona squamosa. There was, however, no activity with Azadirachta indica oil. Further examination of chromatographic fractions of P. pinnata oil narrowed down activity to one of four fractions. [M. leukarti is a dracunculiasis vector.].
