Toxicity of essential oil vapours obtained from Pistacia spp. to the granary weevil, Sitophilus granarius (L.) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)



Toxicity of essential oil vapours obtained from Pistacia spp. to the granary weevil, Sitophilus granarius (L.) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)



Zeitschrift fur Pflanzenkrankheiten und Pflanzenschutz 111(4): 400-407



The major constituents of essential oils isolated from Pistacia spp. were analysed by GC and GC-MS methods. Essential oil vapours from Pistacia lentiscus, P. terebinthus and P. vera (Anacandiacea) were tested for their toxicity against the adults of Sitophilus granarius (L.) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae). The amounts of essential oils applied were 4, 8, 16, 32 micro l in each of the desiccators with 4 l capacity, corresponding to 1, 2, 4, 8 micro l/l air.
