Plant essential oils from 21 plant species were tested for their insecticidal activities against larvae of Lycoriella ingenua Dufour (Diptera: Sciaridae) by using a fumigation bioassay. Good insecticidal activity against larvae of L. ingenua was achieved with essential oils of Acorus gramineus Solander, Schizonepeta tenuifolia Briquet, and Zanthoxylum piperitum De Candolle at 25 microg/ml air. S. tenuifolia oil showed the most potent insecticidal activity among the plant essential oils. At 12.5… 
Chemical Composition and Insecticidal Activity of the Essential Oil of Cyperus rotundus Rhizomes Against Liposcelis bostrychophila (Psocoptera: Liposcelididae)
The results suggest that the essential oil of C. rotundus rhizome and the two isolated constituent compounds may be used in grain storage to combat insect pests.
The Effect of Chemical Composition and Bioactivity of Several Essential Oils on Tenebrio molitor (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae)
The mainly active ingredients of L. cubeba and C. limonum, including D-limonene and β-pinene, were demonstrated to coinhibit the actives of AChE and enhance the toxicities on 10th instar of T. molitor.
Efficacy of some Plant Essential Oils as Green Insecticides to Control Whitefly, Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius)
Ten plant essential oils were extracted and then tested for their activity as natural insecticides against the whitefly, Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius). In-vitro bioassay, the contact toxicity of the
Variation in the susceptibility of two Callosobruchus species to essential oils
Comparative susceptibility analysis suggested that eggs and adults of C. subinnotatus were two-fold more tolerant to essential oils than C. maculatus in both stages and Oviposition of treated females was strongly reduced in the presence of essential oils.
Correlation of antioxidant activity and volatile oil chemical components from Schizonepeta tenuifolia herbs by chemometric methods
ABSTRACT In this paper, 15 batches of volatile oil from Schizonepeta tenuifolia herbs (STVO) originating from different areas of China were used to identify and quantify eight main components by
In vivo fungicidal activity of medicinal plant extracts against six phytopathogenic fungi
Abstract Methanol extracts from 27 medicinal plant species were tested at concentrations of 0.5, 1 and 2 mg/mL for their in vivo fungicidal activities against six phytopathogenic fungi. Their
Biological effects of essential oils--a review.
Findings suggest that, at least in part, the encountered beneficial effects of essential oils are due to prooxidant effects on the cellular level.
Quantitative Comparative Analysis of the Bio-Active and Toxic Constituents of Leaves and Spikes of Schizonepeta tenuifolia at Different Harvesting Times
The results showed that the GC-MS-Selected Ion Monitoring method was simple, sensitive and reproducible, and that harvesting time was a possible key factor in influencing the quality of ST leaves, but not its spikes.
Millettia pinnata and Sesamum indicum seed oil based green pesticide formulations for the management of tea red spider mite, Oligonychus coffeae Nietner (Acari: Tetranychidae)
The data suggests that plant oils of M. pinnata and S. indicum seeds alone and in combinations have potential to manage tea red spider mite in the field and can be recommended for eco-friendly management of mite pest in tea.
Epidemiology of tomato spotted wilt virus in Chrysanthemum morifolium in South Korea and its management using a soil-dwelling predatory mite (Stratiolaelaps scimitus) and essential oils.
The findings contribute to the development of novel strategies to control TSWV disease in chrysanthemum plants; notably, the control of F. occidentalis using eco-friendly insecticides appears promising.


Plant-associated toxins in animal feed: Screening and confirmation assay development
To protect animal health, welfare and productivity there is an ongoing need to elucidate the factors associated with intoxication, chemically identify the causative toxins and then develop assay methodology to allow the assessment of animal feed for potential toxicity.
Insecticides of plant origin
