Investigations on the development of a biocontrol agent against the alarming stored food pest Corcyra cephalonica has witnessed noteworthy growth in current years from mainly physiological studies, to tackling fundamental queries concerning the underlying mode of action. Chitinase from Trichoderma viride, which has inauspicious effects on feeding behavior, development and biochemical parameters of insects. The effects of oral intake of chitinase integrated feed in IV instar C. cephalonica were…

Consequence of Chitinase from Trichoderma viride Integrated Feed on Digestive Enzymes in Corcyra cephalonica ( Stainton ) and Antimicrobial Potential
TLDR
The results observed show that the chitinase from Trichoderma viride can be promoted as a biocontrol agent against the stored food grain pests.
PHYSIOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF CRUDE CHITINASE FROM AEROMONAS HYDROPHILA ON THE GREATER WAX MOTH; GALLERIA MELLONELLA L. (LEPIDOPTERA: PYRALIDAE)
TLDR
Crude chitinase from Aeromonas hydrophila may serve as a powerful biocontrol tool against insects and provide a suitable substitute for synthetic pesticides.
Genotoxic and cytotoxic effect of chitinase against Corcyra cephalonica larvae under laboratory conditions
TLDR
The present study concludes that chitinase cause genotoxic effects in the larvae of C. cephalonica, which can be utilized as a potent biocontrol agent against various crop pests.
Use of Trichoderma koningiopsis chitinase to enhance the insecticidal activity of Beauveria bassiana against Diatraea saccharalis
TLDR
The potential of chitinases produced by T. koningiopsis in solid fermentation to be recovered from the waste substrate and used as an additive to enhance B. bassiana, adding value to the main waste from the Trichoderma biopesticide/biofertilizer industries.

Bioactivity Effect of Piper nigrum L. and Jatropha curcas L. Extracts Against Corcyra cephalonica (Stainton)
TLDR
Both extracts showed high bioactivity at all doses against C. cephalonica larvae and antifeedant action was increased with increasing plant extract concentrations, and could be used in IPM program for rice moth.
Effect ofMelia azedarach fruit extract on juvenile hormone titer and protein content in the hemolymph of two species of noctuid lepidopteran larvae [insecta: Lepidoptera: Noctuidae]
TLDR
The results show that an enriched methanolic extract ofMelia azedarach fruit extract has an effect on the neuroendocrine control in the insects.
Effect of Malathion on Biochemical Alterations in Corcyra cephalonica
TLDR
The result shows carbohydrate contents (glucose & glycogen) were found to be normal in the larvae fed on normal diet while pesticidal treatment caused an overall decrease where as the protein content has been found to have been increased after pesticide treatment.
