Structural characterization of nanoparticles loaded with garlic essential oil and their insecticidal activity against Tribolium castaneum (Herbst) (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae).
TLDR
The control efficacy against adult T. castaneum remained over 80% after five months, presumably due to the slow and persistent release of the active components from the nanoparticles, and indicates that it is feasible to use the PEG coating nanoparticles loaded with garlic essential oil to control the store-product pests.

Use of an innovative T-tube maze assay and the proboscis extension response assay to assess sublethal effects of GM products and pesticides on learning capacity of the honey bee Apis mellifera L.
TLDR
Oral exposure to CCRI41 pollen did not affect learning capacities of honey bees in both the T-tube maze and PER tests, however, exposure to imidacloprid resulted in reduced visual learning capacities in T- tube maze evaluation and decreased olfactory learning performances measured with PER. Expand
Ultraviolet light-induced oxidative stress: effects on antioxidant response of Helicoverpa armigera adults.
TLDR
The hypothesis that UV light irradiation increases the level of oxidative stress in H. armigera adults is confirmed, and exposure to UV light for 30 min resulted in increased total antioxidant capacity, protein carbonyl content and activities of SOD, CAT, POX and GST. Expand
Repellent and fumigant activity of essential oil from Artemisia vulgaris to Tribolium castaneum (Herbst) (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae)
TLDR
Repellent and fumigant activity of the essential oil of mugwort, Artemisia vulgaris, against the stored-product insect pest, Tribolium castaneum was investigated and it was confirmed that the Percentage of larvae reaching the pupal stage and the percentage of pupae that reached the adult stage, decreased significantly with increase in dosage concentration. Expand
The involvement of heat shock protein and cytochrome P450 genes in response to UV-A exposure in the beetle Tribolium castaneum.
TLDR
The experiments revealed that UV-A irradiation could influence the expression profile of stress-responsive genes, such as Hsps and P450s, which have universal TFBMs, and that these genes may be involved in reducing the ecological challenges posed by irradiation. Expand
Quantification of toxins in a Cry1Ac + CpTI cotton cultivar and its potential effects on the honey bee Apis mellifera L.
TLDR
The results suggested that Cry1Ac + CpTI pollen carried no lethal risk for honey bees, however, during a 7-day oral exposure to the various treatments, honey bee feeding behaviour was disturbed and bees consumed significantly less CCRI41 cotton pollen than in the control group in which bees were exposed to conventional cotton pollen. Expand
Field evaluation of a fipronil bait against subterranean termite Odontotermes formosanus (Isoptera: Termitidae).
TLDR
Baits containing fipronil seem to be a feasible alternative for controlling subterranean termite O. formosanus in China. Expand
A Review of Invasive Biology, Prevalence and Management of Leptocybe invasa Fisher & La Salle (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae: Tetrastichinae)
TLDR
The invasive biology, distribution, mode of spread and situation of management of L. invasa is reviewed, including reproductive mode and population expansion, impact factors and the formation mechanism of inducing gall, flight capacity and effects of the ecological environment on distribution and occurrence are reviewed. Expand
Fumigant and repellent activities of essential oil from Coriandrum sativum (L.) (Apiaceae) against red flour beetle Tribolium castaneum (Herbst) (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae)
TLDR
The biological activity of essential oil extracted from coriander, Coriandrum sativum L. C. (Apiaceae) against eggs, larvae and adults of Tribolium castaneum (Herbst) was investigated in a series of laboratory experiments and showed vapour toxicity and strong repellency on filter paper arena test towards all the stages used. Expand
The molecular characterization of antioxidant enzyme genes in Helicoverpa armigera adults and their involvement in response to ultraviolet-A stress.
TLDR
It is inferred that the different antioxidant enzymes of H. armigera act in a coordinated manner at the transcriptional level against oxidative stress caused by UV-A radiation. Expand
