Laboratory investigations on the repellency of some plant oils to red flour beetle tribolium castaneum herbst



Laboratory investigations on the repellency of some plant oils to red flour beetle tribolium castaneum herbst



Pakistan Journal of Scientific & Industrial Research 30(10): 754-756



Seventeen locally available plant oils were tested for their repellant activity against red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum. The studies have shown that the seed oil of iple iple, Intsia bijuga (Coteber) Kuntze can be favourably compared with neem oil. Both these soils showed class V repellency. Vegetable oils from Ocimum basilicum L. Allium sativum L. Tagetes erecta L., Momordica charantia L., Apium graveolens L., showed repellent activity of class IV while oils from Cuminum cyminum L., Lagenaria vulgaris Seringe, Brassica juncea L. exhibited repellent activity of class III.
