  author={Ulfat Samreen and Muhammad Ibrar and Barkat Ullah and Lal Badshah},
In order to control pest attack on the stored grainst entomologist throughout the world worked to find out effective device against these pests. Mostly synthetic drugs are used for control of these pests, which tough were effective, but at the same time they proved very dangerous, as they created extreme environmental hazards. These synthetic pesticides are mostly non-degradible and hence cause water and soil pollutions, as well as human health problems. Insecticidal activity of S. asper showed…

Comparative growth inhibitory and antifeedant effects of plant extracts and pure allelochemicals on four phytophagous insect species
Because of interspecific differences in response to feeding deterrents and the lack of a strong relationship between EC50 and DC50 values, it is recommended to testing a battery of bioassay species with candidate compounds and the use of more than one bioassays.
