In Cameroon and particularly in the Far North region, postharvest losses are a major problem for rural populations. To reduce losses due to storage pests, the use of biopesticides, remains the recommended method because it provides effective effect against pests without causing health problems to consumers and degrading the environment. This study aimed to evaluate the toxicity and repellent effect of Cassia mimosoides, Eucalyptus camaldulensis and Vepris heterophylla extracts on adults and…

Toxicity of the powdery formulation of Hyptis spicigera (Lamiaceae), Azadirachta indica (Meliaceae) and Vepris heterophylla (Rutaceae) Single and in combination on Tribolium castaneum Herbst. (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae)

An ethno-botanical survey conducted with about 300 farmers in the Far North region of Cameroon identified 15 local plants insecticides associated with food during storage in combination with two or three others.

Bioefficacity of mixed powders of Vepris heterophylla and Syzygium aromaticum on the developing stages of Callosobruchus maculatus (Coleoptera: Bruchidae) pest control of Vigna unguiculata (Fabacae) in storage in the Far-North region of Cameroun

The effect of mixed powders of Vepris heterophylla and Syzygium aromaticum on the developing stages of Callosobruchus maculatus was investigated and the increase in the doses led to the decrease of the number of eggs laid.

Chemical Composition, Toxicity and Repellency of Inula graveolens Essential Oils from Roots and Aerial Parts against Stored‐Product Beetle Tribolium castaneum (Herbst)

In this work, essential oils extracted from roots and aerial parts of Inula graveolens by hydrodistillation and their fractions obtained by chromatographic simplification were first investigated for

Management of Callosobruchus maculatus F. (Coleoptera: Bruchidae) using methanol extracts of Carica papaya, Carissa edulis, Securidaca longepedonculata and Vinca rosea and impact of insect pollinators on cowpea types in the Far-North region of Cameroon

In Maroua, Cameroon, from April to August 2016, the methanol extracts of plants were applied at 0, 100 and 200mL per 50g of cowpea seeds obtained from free pollination (FP), from protected flower

Contact toxicity and repellent effect of three solvent extracts of Lippia rugosa A. Chev. leaves on the adults of Tribolium castaneum Herbst. (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae)

The use of chemical insecticides in the fight against pests is a real threat to the environment and human health. Thus, insecticidal plants are therefore a serious alternative to cure this issue. In

Bioactivity of Securidaca longepedunculata Fres. against Callosobruchus maculatus Fab. (Coleoptera: Bruchidae) and Sitophilus zeamais Motsch (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)

The root powder of S. longepedunculata proved effective at 1 and 5% against S. zeamais and C. maculatus due to the presence of 2-hydroxy-benzoic acid methyl ester (methyl salicylate, I) which is responsible of their biocide effect against the stored grain insects.

Tribolium castaneum (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) sensitivity to repetitive applications of lethal doses of imidacloprid and extracts of Clausena anisata (Rutaceae) and Plectranthus glandulosus (Lamiaceae).

The present work was carried out to compare the variation in the efficiency of a synthetic insecticide, imidacloprid and essential oils of Clausena anisata and P lectranthus glandulosus against the flour beetle Tribolium castaneum during 4 generations (F4).

Persistent effect of a preparation of essential oil from Xylopia aethiopica against Callosobruchus maculatus (Coleoptera, Bruchidae)

The authors results indicate that protection of cowpeas against C. maculatus may be possible using a formulation based on the dry fruits of X. aethiopica; the powder may increase the persistence of the essential oil.

Larvicidal Activity of Cassia occidentalis (Linn.) against the Larvae of Bancroftian Filariasis Vector Mosquito Culex quinquefasciatus

This study justified that plant Cassia occidentalis (Linn.) has a realistic mortality result for larvae of filarial vector, which is safe to individual and communities against mosquitoes and is a natural weapon for mosquito control.

Ethanolic extract of melgota ( Macaranga postulata ) for repellency, insecticidal activity against rice weevil ( Sitophilus oryzae )

Ethanolic extract of Melgota is used for repellency, insecticidal activity against rice weevil (Sitophilus oryzae) with emphasis on chemical investigation. Fruits of Melgota (Macaranga postulata)

Optimization of the insecticidal effect of essential oils of three medicinal plants against rice weevil Sitophilus oryzae L. (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)

It was found that the essential oil of O. canum was the most efficient while V. heterophylla essential oil was the least efficient one and farmers could used them in combination as potent insecticides to reduce weevil attack of stored rice and sorghum.

Responses of Tribolium castaneum (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) and Sitophilus oryzae (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) against essential oils and pure compounds

The essential oils of Zingiber officinale rhizomes and Piper cubeba berries as well as pure compounds, α-pinene and β-caryophyllene, were evaluated for their contact toxicity, persistence of insecticidal and antifeeding activities against T castaneum and S oryzae.

Biological activity of 1,8 cineole, a major component of essential oil of Ocimum kenyense (Ayobangira) against stored product beetles

The efficacy of 1,8 cineole as repellent, toxicant and grain protectant against Sitophilus granarius, S. zeamais, Tribolium castaneum and Prostephanus truncatus was investiaged in the laboratory

Chemical Composition, Insecticidal Effect and Repellent Activity of Essential Oils of Three Aromatic Plants, Alone and in Combination, towards Sitophilus Oryzae L. (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)

The present work revealed that these plants are rich in monoterpenoids, which suggest a suitable strategy for pest management of stored products.
