  author={Hui Zhang and Guilin Chen and Shiyou L{\"u} and Lin Zhang and Mingquan Guo},
Simple Summary Odontotermes formosanus (Shiraki) (O. formosanus) and Plutella xylostella (Linnaeus) (P. xylostella) are common industrial and agricultural pests with a wide distribution range, multiple host species, few natural predators, and rapid reproduction. The control of these pests relies heavily on synthetic chemical pesticides; however, environmental pollution and the rise of insect resistance induced by the excessive use of synthetic chemical pesticides pose serious challenges. The…

Insecticidal Activity of Extracts, Fractions, and Pure Molecules of Cissampelos pareira Linnaeus against Aphid, Aphis craccivora Koch

Aphis craccivora Koch is a polyphagous and major pest of leguminous crops causing significant damage by reducing the yield. Repeated application of synthetic insecticides for the control of aphids

Preliminary Predictive Model of Termiticidal and Repellent Activities of Essential Oil Extracted from Ocotea quixos Leaves against Nasutitermes corniger (Isoptera: Termitidae) Using One-Factor Response Surface Methodology Design

The aim of this research was to predict the termiticidal and repellent effects of the essential oil from Ocotea quixos leaves on Nasutitermes corniger using a one-factor response surface methodology design.

In silico evaluation of binding of phytochemicals from bayati (Anamirta cocculus Linn) to the glutathione-s-transferase of Asian Corn Borer (Ostrinia furnacalis Guenée).

Molecular dynamics simulation revealed that lupeol and gamma-sitosterol have a greater stabilizing effect on OfGST than stigmasterol, as supported by the RMSD, radius of gyration, and SASA plots of all complexes.



Insecticidal Activity of Compounds of Plant Origin on Mahanarva spectabilis (Hemiptera: Cercopidae)

Results showed that, at these concentrations, trans-anethole presents a high rate of insecticidal activity on M. spectabilis nymphs and adults and, therefore, is recommended as a potential natural insecticide for the control of this pest.

Insecticidal Activity and Active Components of Cynanchi auriculati against Plutella xylostella

The contacting bioactivity of ethanol extract, different polar-solvent extracts and silica gel column sub- fractions of Cynanchi auriculati have been tested against 3rd larvae of Plutella xylostella

Sub-lethal effects of essential oil of Lippia sidoides on drywood termite Cryptotermes brevis (Blattodea: Termitoidea).

Findings of the study suggest that Z. officinale and P. cubeba essential oils can be useful as promising agent in insect pest management programme.

Evaluation of Five Medicinal Plant Extracts on Aphis craccivora (Hemiptera: Aphididae) and Its Predator, Chrysoperla carnea (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae) under Laboratory Conditions

O. baccatus could be exploited and further developed as an effective plant extract-based insecticide to be utilized in integrated pest management (IPM) programs against A. craccivora and the 2nd larval instar of the green lacewing.

Additive Effect of Botanical Insecticide and Entomopathogenic Fungi on Pest Mortality and the Behavioral Response of Its Natural Enemy

The results indicate the potential for biorational pesticides that combine botanicals with EPF and highlight the potential of applications of pyrethrum at lower doses, or the use of less refined products with lower production costs to achieve control.
