Structural characterization of nanoparticles loaded with garlic essential oil and their insecticidal activity against Tribolium castaneum (Herbst) (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae).
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.

Ultraviolet light-induced oxidative stress: effects on antioxidant response of Helicoverpa armigera adults.
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)
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.

Exploring the chemical safety of fly larvae as a source of protein for animal feed
Safety data is presented from the larvae of the four fly species that have perhaps the greatest economic relevance in relation to their use as animal feed being: house fly, blue bottle, red bottle, blow fly and black soldier fly. Expand
Insecticidal activities of garlic substances against adults of grain moth, Sitotroga cerealella (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae)
Diallyl disulfide and diallyl trisulfide may serve as potential alternatives for grain protectants since both of them can be prepared easily from readily available chemicals. Expand
Speciation of heavy metals and bacteria in cow dung after vermicomposting by the earthworm, Eisenia fetida.
Results showed that heavy metal concentrations were declined significantly in EFCD, and the bacterial composition and diversity were changed greatly during vermicomposting. Expand
Preparation and biological activities of chitosan from the larvae of housefly, Musca domestica
Abstract Many studies have indicated that the larvae of housefly possess excellent nutritional and pharmacological value. In the present study, the chitosan was isolated from the larvae of housefly,Expand
Cloning and Characterization of a Gene Encoding HMG-CoA Reductase from Ganoderma lucidum and Its Functional Identification in Yeast
Functional complementation of Gl-HMGR in a HMGR-deficient mutant yeast strain indicated that the cloned cDNA encoded a HMG-CoA reductase. Expand
The developmental transcriptome of the synanthropic fly Chrysomya megacephala and insights into olfactory proteins
A comprehensive sequence resource with desirable quality was built by comparative transcriptome of eggs, larvae and adults, enriching the genomic platform of C. megacephala and identifying differentially expressed genes would facilitate the understanding of metamorphosis, development and the fitness to environmental change of the blowfly.

Effects of UV‐A exposures on longevity and reproduction in Helicoverpa armigera, and on the development of its F1 generation
Exposure to UV‐A for longer periods caused a decline in cumulative survival of F1 immature stages, but no significant differences were found in egg hatch, pupation and eclosion. Expand
