Insecticidal efficiency of essential oils of 5 aromatic plants tested both alone and in combination towards Sitophilus oryzae (L.) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)

Insecticidal efficiency of essential oils of 5 aromatic plants tested both alone and in combination towards Sitophilus oryzae (L.) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)

Research Journal of Biological Sciences 2(1): 75-80

To prevent attacks of stored grains by insects pest, rural farmers in the past times regularly introduce aromatic plants in their granaries. These plants were used alone or associated in groups of 2 or 3 plants. Active compounds of these aromatic plants, mostly present in their essential oils, have insecticidal properties.
