  • Abstract Toxicity of various essential oils and their volatile constituents towards the rice weevil, Sitophilus oryzae (L.) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), was determined. The most potent toxicity was found in essential oil from eucalyptus (LD 50 =28.9 μl/l air). GC-MS analysis of essential oil from eucalyptus showed it to be rich in 1,8-cineole (81.1%), limonene (7.6%) and α -pinene (4.0%). Treatment of S. oryzae with each of these terpenes showed 1,8-cineole to be most active (LD 50 =23.5 μl/l… CONTINUE READING
