ABSTRACT The aim of this study was to evaluate the fumigant and repellent activity of five essential oils (from eucalyptus, geranium, lavender, mint, and orange oil) and seven monoterpenes (eucalyptol, geraniol, limonene, linalool, menthone, linalyl acetate, and menthyl acetate) on first-instar nymphs of the bloodsucking bug Rhodnius prolixus Stahl (vector of Chagas disease in several Latin American countries). Fumigant activity was evaluated by exposing the nymphs to the vapors emitted by… 

Insecticidal Activity of Essential Oils from Eleven Eucalyptus spp. and Two Hybrids: Lethal and Sublethal Effects of Their Major Components on Blattella germanica

There was a strong positive correlation between the fumigant activity of essential oils and their corresponding 1, 8-cineole and &agr;-pinene concentration and the broad-spectrum insect repellent N,N-diethyl-3-methylbenzamide.

Lethal and sublethal effects of eucalyptol on Triatoma infestans and Rhodnius prolixus, vectors of Chagas disease

Eucalyptol seems discouraged as a hyperactivant agent for monitoring insects in rural houses because its knock‐down and repellence effect on vectors of Chagas disease deserve further investigation.

Repellence and fumigant toxicity of essential oils of Ocimum gratissimum and Ocimum kilimandscharicum on Tuta absoluta (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae)

Tuta absoluta Meyrick originates in South America and is now one of the most important insect pests of Solanaceae in different parts of the world, including Africa. Its control has relied primarily

Green insecticide against Chagas disease: effects of essential oil from Myrciaria floribunda (Myrtaceae) on the development of Rhodnius prolixus nymphs

The data indicate the special metabolites in the essential oil of M. floribunda as promising candidates for studying insecticidal activity and for use as environmentally friendly control compounds to Chagas disease vectors.

[Insecticidal action of synthetic girgensohnine analogues and essential oils on Rhodnius prolixus (Hemiptera: Reduviidae)].

Synthetic girgensohnine analogues and essential oils showed insecticidal activity in R. prolixus nymphs, and Analogue 3 showed the greatest Insecticidal activity among all molecules and oils evaluated under laboratory conditions.

Repellent activity of the essential oil from Laurelia sempervirens (Ruiz & Pav.) Tul. (Monimiaceae) on Triatoma infestans (Klug) (Reduviidae)

The objective of this study was to determine the chemical composition of the EO of the Chilean laurel, Laurelia sempervirens and to evaluate its repellent effect on fifth-instar nymphs of T. infestans.

Repellence Produced by Monoterpenes on Rhodnius prolixus (Hemiptera: Reduviidae) Decreases After Continuous Exposure to These Compounds

This study studied the repellence produced by two monoterpenes, menthyl acetate and geraniol, on fifth instar nymphs of R. prolixus, one of the main vectors of Chagas disease in the north of South America and some countries in Central America.

Repellency and insecticidal activity of seven Mugwort (Artemisia argyi) essential oils against the malaria vector Anopheles sinensis

Anopheles sinensis is the main vector of malaria with a wide distribution in China and its adjacent countries. The smoke from burning dried mugwort leaves has been commonly used to repel and kill

Fumigant toxicity of three Satureja species on tomato leafminers, Tuta absoluta (Meyrick) (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae)

Considering the potential toxicity of these three species of Satureja essential oils to the tomato leafminers due to existence of several secondary metabolites, it can expect that new bio-pesticides can be developed from these promising plants in near future.

Behavioral and Toxicological Responses of Rhodnius prolixus and Triatoma infestans (Hemiptera: Reduviidae) to 10 Monoterpene Alcohols

ABSTRACT The effect on locomotor activity, the repellency, and the knock-down produced by 10 monoterpene alcohols were evaluated on first-instar nymphs of Rhodnius prolixus and Triatoma infestans,



Fumigant and Repellent Properties of Essential Oils and Component Compounds Against Permethrin-Resistant Pediculus humanus capitis (Anoplura: Pediculidae) from Argentina

Some Argentinean plants contain essential oils and components that function as fumigants or as repellents and thereby show potential for development of new control products for head lice.

Insecticidal properties of several monoterpenoids to the house fly (Diptera: Muscidae), red flour beetle (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae), and southern corn rootworm (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae).

House flies, Musca domestica, and their eggs were treated with 22 monoterpenoids to determine the topical, fumigant, and ovicidal activity of each compound, and toxicity differences involving the skeletal structure, amount of saturation, and associated functional groups of monoterapenoids were determined.

Repellent activities of essential oils and monoterpenes against Culex pipiens pallens.

With gas chromatography-mass spectrometry analysis, thyme essential oil was a rich source of 5 monoterpenes, including in descending order thymol, p-cymene, carvacrol, linalool, and alpha-terpinene, which effectively repelled adult mosquitoes on hairless mice.

Insecticidal properties of monoterpenoid derivatives to the house fly (diptera: Muscidae) and red flour beetle (coleoptera: Tenebrionidae)

Fluoroacetates of cyclic monoterpenoids were the most effective house fly fumigants, followed by acetates, and trichloroacetates, which were both more insecticidal and more effective than haloacetates in the topical, red flour beetle fumigation and ovicidal bioassays.
