Abstract The essential oil of catnip, Nepeta cataria L., contains two isomers of nepetalactone, E,Z- and Z,E-nepetalactone, and was tested for repellent activity to adult male German cockroaches, Blattella germanica (L.), in a choice-test arena. The two isomers of nepetalactone were purified by using preparative thin-layer chromatography and tested for behavioral activity in the choice-test arena. Significant differences due to concentration were detected by analysis of variance, and the… Expand

The Behavioral Response of Blattella germanica (Blattodea: Ectobiidae) Exposed to DEET Varies Throughout Its Life Cycle
TLDR
The results show the importance of assessing insect repellents at different stages of the insect's life cycle in order to obtain a complete panorama of its effect. Expand
Catnip Essential Oil as a Barrier to Subterranean Termites (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) in the Laboratory
TLDR
Although tunneling ceased in these tests, mortality was not high, indicating that the termites avoided the treated sand, and effectiveness of catnip oil was equivalent to other monoterpenoids reported in the literature. Expand
Repellency Assays with Schinus molle var. areira (L.) (Anacardiaceae) Essential Oils against Blattella germanica L. (Blattodea: Blattellidae)
TLDR
In this study, essential oil extracted from leaves and fruits of Schinus molle var. Expand
Repellent activity of essential oils against cockroaches (Dictyoptera: Blattidae, Blattellidae, and Blaberidae) in Thailand.
TLDR
Citrus hystrix essential oil has good potential for being used as a cockroach repellent and some additives provided satisfactory repellency of up to 86% reduction in cockroaches. Expand
Contact toxicity of essential oils of Allium sativum L. and Citrus nobilis var. deliciosa (Ten.) Swingle against adults of German cockroach, Blattella germanica (L.) (Dictyoptera: Blattellidae)
Background: The German cockroach, Blattella germanica (L.), is an important health and economic pest. Due to the development of resistance to insecticides and medical and economic importance ofExpand
Insecticidal activity of Artemisia sieberi, Eucalyptus camaldulensis, Thymus persicus and Eruca sativa oils against German cockroach, Blattella germanica (L.)
TLDR
The results showed that the EOs were significantly more toxic than ESO in both fumigant and dipping methods, so the ESO could be considered as a good candidate in control of the cockroach but in enclosed spaces such as inaccessible cockroach hiding places, the EO of A. sieberi can be useful. Expand
Contact toxicity of essential oils of Allium sativum L. and Citrus nobilis var. deliciosa (Ten.) Swingle against adults of Blattella germanica (L.) (Dictyoptera: Blattellidae)
TLDR
The results of probit analyses of mortality data after 24 hours indicated that mortality of cockroaches was increased with increasing oil concentration, and the use of environmental-friendly biopesticides including essential oils is suggested for integrated management of German cockroach populations in urban areas. Expand
Biological Activity of Essential Oil from Piper nigrum Against Nymphs and Adults of Blattella germanica (Blattodea: Blattellidae)
TLDR
Results from this study indicated that essential oil from P. nigrum could be effective to manage nymph and adult stages of German cockroaches. Expand
Catnip Essential Oil and Its Nepetalactone Isomers as Repellents for Mosquitoes
TLDR
Both nepetalactone isomers and the catnip essential oil had excellent spatial repellency while DEET only exhibited spatial repelling at higher concentrations. Expand
Dihydronepetalactones Deter Feeding Activity by Mosquitoes, Stable Flies, and Deer Ticks
TLDR
DHN 1, DHN 2, and p-menthane-3,8-diol (PMD), another natural monoterpenoid repellent, gave comparable levels of repellency against An. Expand

Monoterpenoids as Repellents against the German Cockroach ( Blattella germanica L.)
TLDR
It has been suggested that repellent potency within this series is not dependent upon volatility and molecular size or optical rotation, but dependent primarily upon molecular configuration and the position of some functional groups. Expand
