Laboratory evaluation of the anti termitic activity of malathion nuvan and camphor



Laboratory evaluation of the anti termitic activity of malathion nuvan and camphor



International Pest Control 26(6): 160-162, 165



The anti-termitic activities of malathion, Nuvan and camphor were evaluated in the laboratory using contact toxicity, preference and expanded laboratory anti-tunnelling methods. All test compounds showed positive contact toxicity against Amitermes evuncifer Silvestri in both sand and soil substrates. At 6.6 ppm both malathion and Nuvan achieved between 86 and 99% mortality of termites, but camphor only gave roughly comparable mortalities of between 62 and 95% at a much higher dosage of 500 ppm. Sand and soil substrates appeared to have affected only the activity of camphor, as both malathion and Nuvan recorded mortalities which were not statistically different on either substrate. Malathion was most repellent on wood, followed by Nuvan and camphor, respectively. Malathion and Nuvan at 6.6 ppm delayed tunnelling for only 20 days, while camphor at 100 ppm and 500 ppm delayed tunnelling for up to 35 days.
