Disruption of growth and metamorphosis in Dysdercus koenigii Fabr. (Heteroptera: Pyrrhocoridae) by some plant extracts


Disruption of growth and metamorphosis in Dysdercus koenigii Fabr. (Heteroptera: Pyrrhocoridae) by some plant extracts



Journal of Experimental Zoology, India 6(1): 181-194



Undesirable side effects stemming from indiscriminate and extensive application of conventional insecticides in recent years has led researchers to analyse the role of plant products in controlling feeding, reproduction and growth and metamorphosis in insects. In the present investigations, effects of extracts of leaves of Cassia fistula (Caesalpinaceae) and Eucalyptus globulus (Myrtaceae) on growth and metamorphosis of D. koenigii have been assessed.
