Microencapsulation of the desired oil reduces the evaporation rate due to limited permeability of thin wall material thereby increasing efficacy for a longer period. For evaluating antifeedant effect, microcapsules containing three different concentrations of the oil (3, 5 or 7%) and mixed in food at 5, 10 and 20% concentrations were exposed to house rats, Rattus rattus. Significant antifeedant effect of microcapsules was found at all the three concentrations of oil and that of microcapsules… Expand
