Laboratory experiments were conducted to investigate the insecticidal effects ofNeem (Azadirachta indica) seeds ethanolic extract and Jatropha (Jatropha curcus) seeds petroleum ether extract against eggs and larvae of tomato leaf miner (Tuta absoluta).Newly laid eggs of tomato leaf miner were treated topically by five concentrations (1000, 500, 250, 125 and 62.5 mg/L) of each plant seed extract. Meanwhile, the larvae were exposed to four concentrations (8000, 6000, 4000 and 2000 mg/L) of each… Expand

Effectiveness of two biopesticides against the invasive tomato pest Tuta absoluta
TLDR
Two bioinsecticides compared to that of a widely used deltamethrin‐based synthetic insecticide were investigated in preventing damage caused by T. absoluta larvae to tomato leaves and fruits, thereby affecting tomato yield and the viability of these organic alternatives was shown. Expand
Potential of Zygophyllum album L. to control Tuta absoluta in Southeastern Algeria
TLDR
The data show that the toxicity of Z. album aqueous extract against T. absoluta increases with time and from the highest dose to the smallest one, and shows a repulsive effect of Zygophyllum album against T.'soluta females. Expand
