Laboratory toxicity of the crude extracts of Piper guineense Schum and Thonn, Azadirachta indica A. Juss and Parkia clappertoniana (JACQ) to the termites Macrotermes nigeriensis (Sjostedt) (Isoptera: Termitidae)



Laboratory toxicity of the crude extracts of Piper guineense Schum and Thonn, Azadirachta indica A. Juss and Parkia clappertoniana (JACQ) to the termites Macrotermes nigeriensis (Sjostedt) (Isoptera: Termitidae)



Insect Science and its Application 14(2): 229-233



Aqueous extracts (5%) of the seeds of Parkia clappertoniana (Jacq), Azadirachta indica A. Juss, and Piper guineense Schum and Thonn caused 90% mortality of the worker caste with P. guineense, and 86% mortality with A. indica and P. clappertoniana respectively within 3 hr of topical application. At 24 hr, mortality of Macrotermes nigeriensis (Sjostedti) workers was 100% with the same concentration of each extract.
