  • Abstract Toxicity of various essential oils and their volatile components against the red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum (Herbst) was determined. The most potent fumigant toxicity was found in essential oil from rosemary (LD 50 = 7.8 μl/l air) followed by the oils of lemon (LD 50 = 16.2 μl/l air), basil (LD 50 = 17.8 μl/l air), lime (LD 50 = 17.9 μl/l air), and peppermint (LD 50 = 25.8 μl/l air). 1,8-Cineole was the most toxic fumigant compound found in rosemary essential oil (LD 50 = 7.4 μl… CONTINUE READING
