Insecticidal effect of plant extracts on Phlebotomus argentipes (Diptera: Psychodidae) in Bihar, India
Evaluating various plant extracts from endemic and non-endemic areas of Bihar for their insecticidal activity against sandfly to identify the most effective plant extract found the column separated 9th fraction of C. infortunatum extract found to be effective in killing 63 per cent of adult P. argentipes.
Acaricidal properties of Ricinus communis leaf extracts against organophosphate and pyrethroids resistant Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus.
The results indicated that the 95% ethanolic leaf extract of R. communis can be used effectively in integrated format for the control of acaricide resistant ticks.
Activity of Ricinus communis (Euphorbiaceae) against Spodoptera frugiperda (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
It is demonstrated for the first time, that the castor oil and ricinine are active ingredients of R. communis that acts against S. frugiperda and that each of the seed extracts exhibited better insecticidal and insectistatic activity than the leaf extracts.
Attraction of Ethiopian phlebotomine sand flies (Diptera: Psychodidae) to light and sugar-yeast mixtures (CO2)
Although the standard 6 V CDC incandescent light traps captured more sand flies, light-weight 3 V suction traps baited with chemical light-sticks were shown to be effective means of monitoring sand flies.
Distribution and Ecological Aspects of Sand Fly (Diptera: Psychodidae) Species in Sri Lanka
An entomological survey to determine the distribution of probable vector species in Sri Lanka found that P. argentipes was widely distributed throughout the island whereas P. stantoni were collected only in four districts, suggesting this species may be incriminated as the most possible vector of human cutaneous leishmaniasis.
Experimental effect of feeding on Ricinus communis and Bougainvillea glabra on the development of the sand fly Phlebotomus papatasi (Diptera: Psychodidae) from Egypt.
Findings indicate that planting high densities of R. communis and B. glabra in sand flies-endemic areas will reduce population sizes and reduce the risk of Leishmania major infections.
Efficacy of Different Sampling Methods of Sand Flies (Diptera: Psychodidae) in Endemic Focus of Cutaneous Leishmaniasis in Kashan District, Isfahan Province, Iran
Disney trap and sticky traps exhibited the most productivity than other traps and appeared to be the most productive for both estimating the number of sand flies and the species composition in the study area.
Feeding Behavior of Lutzomyia pseudolongipalpis (Diptera: Psychodidae), a Putative Vector of Visceral Leishmaniasis in Venezuela
A new index, the host selectivity index, which is the number of sand flies fed on a given host relative to the available biomass of that host, is proposed as an indicator of the feeding behavior of this phlebotomine sand fly.
The effects of Mundulea sericea (Fabales: Fabaceae) water extracts on Phlebotomus duboscqi (Diptera: Psychodidae) eggs and larvae
Findings suggest that suggest that M. sericea water extracts do not penetrate the egg chorion, thus the lack of activity, and the inability of P. duboscqi to digest the chlorophyll of M.Sericea so as to release rotenone could be responsible for absence of entomocidal effect.
Bio-insecticidal effects of plant extracts and oil emulsions of Ricinus communis L. (Malpighiales: Euphorbiaceae) on the diamondback, Plutella xylostella L. (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae) under laboratory and semi-field conditions
It can be expected that the use of R. communis product be suitable for P. xylostella population density reduction in the field, in view of the low Oviposition rates, oviposition deterrent, immature mortality, and the relatively low persistence of the toxic ricin oil.
