Insect pest management is facing the economic and ecological challenge worldwide due to the environmental hazards caused by the synthetic pesticides. A search for alternate techniques for the insect pests’ management arises in recent years. Botanicals act not only as insecticides but also function as antifeedants, oviposition deterrents and ovicides. The present study was carried out to evaluate the antifeedant activity of Costunolide which was isolated from root extract of Saussurea lappa to… Expand
Assessment of antifeedant potential of azadirachtin, a plant product of Azadirachta indica against Papilio demoleus L. (Lepidoptera: Papilionidae) larvae
TLDR
Azadirachtin a plant product and secondary metabolite isolated from Azadirachta indica was evaluated their antifeedant activity against fourth instar larvae of Papilio demoleus, following no-choice leaf bioassay method and showed increased with increasing concentration. Expand

Repellent effects of five monoterpenoid odours against Tribolium castaneum (Herbst) and Rhyzopertha dominica (F.) in Calabar, Nigeria
TLDR
Five monoterpenoids, which are natural components of the essential oils of Aframomum melegueta and Z. officinale essential oils and their components could be suitable as safer repellents or fumigants against T. castaneum and R. dominica, showed the repellent properties of the compounds as both beetles spent less time in the olfactometer arm containing the test stimuli.

Evaluation of potential use of nootkatone against maize weevil (Sitophilus zeamais Motschulsky) and rice weevil [S. oryzae (L.)](Coleoptera: Curculionidae)
TLDR
Nootkatone showed low contact toxicity and repellency against the two weevil species at the tested concentrations on filter papers, and in choice tests, corn treated with 0.5% nootkatone or higher had significantly fewer maize or rice weevils compared with the solvent only treated control, indicating a repellent effect.
