ABSTRACT The fumigant activity of essential oil vapors distilled from sweet basil Ocimum basilicum L. and spearmint Mentha spicata L. (Lamiaceae) were tested against two major stored products pests Ephestia kuehniella (Zeller) and Plodia interpunctella (Hübner) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae). Various oil doses (0.5, 2.5, 5, 50, 250, 500, 1,000, and 1,500 µl/liter air), for an exposure period of 24 h, were tested. The essential oils were subjected to gas chromatography—mass spectrometry analysis and… Expand
Composition and insecticidal activity of essential oil from Ruta graveolens, Mentha pulegium and Ocimum basilicum against Ectomyelois ceratoniae Zeller and Ephestia kuehniella Zeller (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae)
TLDR
It was demonstrated that fumigant toxicity varied with insect species, essential oil concentration and exposure time, and that M. pulegium essential oil was more toxic to the two stored date pests. Expand
Screening for insecticidal efficacy of two Algerian essential oils with special concern to their impact on biological parameters of Ephestia kuehniella (Zeller) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae)
TLDR
This work supports the use of botanical insecticide as active pest control agents under storage conditions and shows the effectiveness of M. rotundifolia essential oil against the Mediterranean flour moth Ephestia kuehniella. Expand

Abstract This study evaluated the chemical components of spearmint essential oil, and determined individually the efficacy of spearmint EO and its major constituents, and their mutual binaryExpand
Insecticidal Activity of Lamiaceae Plant Essential Oils and Their Constituents Against Blattella germanica L. Adult.
TLDR
Among the constituents identified in basil, pennyroyal, and spearmint oils, insecticidal activity of pulegone was the strongest against male and female B. germanica. Expand
Toxicity of Two Fixed Plant Oils by Using a New Fumigant Method Against Trogoderma granarium Everts and Stegopium paniceum (L.)
TLDR
Clove fixed oil exhibited the strongest fumigant toxicity against all tested insects and T.granarium larvae showed a very high resistance against both oils comparing with adults. Expand
Variations of chemical composition of two Algerian essential oils collected for different seasons and assessment of their insecticidal toxicity against three moth pests
TLDR
Results showed that chemical composition varied with plant species, as well as seasons, and fumigant toxicity depends on insect species, plants, seasons and concentrations, and essential oils collected during summer season could be considered as an effective tool of control against moths of stored products. Expand
Use of binary mixtures of three Mentha essential oils for the control of rice weevil Sitophilus oryzae (Curculionidae)
TLDR
The interest of combing essential oils as a promising alternative to control S. oryzae in storage is demonstrated and this work promotes operating technologies of essential oils to better guide the biopesticide industry towards a sustainable development path. Expand
Toxicity of Four Essential Oils Against Two Insect Pests of Stored Grains, Rhyzopertha dominica (Coleoptera: Bostrychidae) and Sitophilus oryzae (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)
TLDR
The results obtained show that the four essential oils are often more toxic to R. dominica than to S. oryzae, with repellency rates of 82 % and 60.5 %. Expand
