Repellency and toxicity of 8 essential oils (vetiver grass, cassia leaf, clove bud, cedarwood, Eucalyptus globules,Eucalyptus citrodora, lemongrass and geranium) were evaluated against the Formosan subterranean termite, Coptotermes formosanus Shiraki. Vetiver oil proved the most effective repellent because of its long-lasting activity. Clove bud was the most toxic, killing 100% of termites in 2 days at 50 μg/cm2. The tunneling response of termites to vetiver oil also was examined. Vetiver oil… Expand
Biopesticidal value of selected essential oils against pathogenic fungus, termites, and nematodes
TLDR
The use of the crude oils at low concentrations provided satisfactory results at the laboratory level against these pathogens, and needs further evaluation in field trials. Expand
Biotoxicity of some plant essential oils against the termite Nasutitermes corniger (Isoptera: Termitidae)
TLDR
Results show that the essential oils from P. cablin and L. sidoides were up to 25 times more toxic than the oil from C. sonderianus, and may be promising for further studies aiming the control of termites in the field. Expand
Biolarvicidal of Vetiver Oil and Ethanol Extract of Vetiver Root Distillation Waste (Vetiveria zizanoides) Effectiveness toward Aedes aegypti, Culex sp., and Anopheles sundaicus
TLDR
Biolarvicidal effect on 3rd and 4th instar larvae of the mosquito species, which were Aedes aegypti, Culex sp. Expand
Chemical Composition, Antifeedant, Repellent, and Toxicity Activities of the Rhizomes of Galangal, Alpinia galanga Against Asian Subterranean Termites, Coptotermes gestroi and Coptotermes curvignathus (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)
TLDR
The bioactive agent in A. galangal essential oil causing antifeeding activity was identified as 1,8-cineol, which may be developed as an alternative control against termite in sustainable agriculture practices. Expand
Repellent, larvicidal and pupicidal properties of essential oils and their formulations against the housefly, Musca domestica
TLDR
The effectiveness of EC formulations of selected essential oils in reducing housefly populations in field conditions is demonstrated by reducing fly density on treated cattle and 98% on treated plots. Expand
Termiticidal activities of few plant extracts against Macrotermes subhyalinus smeathman and Trinervitermes geminatus wasmann (Isoptera: Termitidae) survival
TLDR
Although these plants extract seem to bear potential termiticidal activity, however, further studies need to be carried out in order to determine their respective components. Expand
Effects of Three Plant Extracts on the Repellency, Toxicity and Tunneling of Subterranean Termite Heterotermes Indicola (Wasmann)
TLDR
Turmeric extract was found to be more efficient in soil treatments to protect a food substrate against termites as termites did not cross the barrier at both concentrations. Expand
Antimicrobial activity of certain essential oils against hindgut symbionts of the drywood termite Kalotermes flavicollis Fabr. and prevalent fungi on termite‐infested wood
Abstract:  When the kalotermitid Kalotermes flavicollis Fabr. pseudergates exposed to Casuarina wood wafers treated separately with different concentrations (5, 15 and 30 μl/2 g wood wafer) of theExpand
Catnip Essential Oil as a Barrier to Subterranean Termites (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) in the Laboratory
TLDR
Although tunneling ceased in these tests, mortality was not high, indicating that the termites avoided the treated sand, and effectiveness of catnip oil was equivalent to other monoterpenoids reported in the literature. Expand
The efficacy of essential oil of Alpinia calcarata (Rosc.) and its major constituent, 1,8-cineole, as protectants of cowpea against Callosobruchus maculatus (F.) (Coleoptera: Bruchidae)
TLDR
The bruchid, Callosobruchus maculatus, (F.) causes major losses during the storage of cowpea seeds in Sri Lanka, and 1,8-cineole, identified as the major constituent of the essential oil, was tested for its potential insecticidal activity against C. Maculatus. Expand

TLDR
Results of bioassays suggest that these allelochemicals act principally as feeding deterrents with accompanying termite mortality due to starvation. Expand
Repellency of Essential Oils Against the Domiciliary Cockroach, Periplaneta Americana
TLDR
Dose-dependent repellency ranging from 57.1 to 100% was exhibited by all six extracts at the lowest concentration tested (12 ppm) of essential oil extracts evaluated for repellent activity against Periplaneta americana using a modification of the “two-cylinders” method. Expand

TLDR
Among the essential oil constituents, menthol showed the highest activity, killing 100% of the mites at the lowest dose (0.25 μl) by direct contact and at 6 μl by inhalation, however, linalool, fenchone, and menthone also showed good acaricidal activity. Expand
Toxicity of monoterpenoids and other natural products to the Formosan subterranean termite (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)
TLDR
Monoterpenoid alcohols, particularly eugenol, were the most effective as termiticides against C. formosanus and was also more effective as a fumigant than citral and geraniol. Expand
