Methanolic extract of Artemisia annua L., a weed collected around paddy fields in north of Iran, was investigated for its toxic effects on: feeding, growth, fecundity, fertility including the biochemical characteristics of elm leaf beetle Xanthogaleruca luteola Mull. The toxicity tests indicate that insecticidal effect was 2.4-fold higher in 3rd instar larvae than in adults. The LC 50 was 48% and 43.77% of a methanolic leaf extract at 24 and 48 h, respectively. The feeding deterrence was… CONTINUE READING
