The insecticidal activity of 34 essential oils, extracted from plants, was screened against the house fly, Musca domestica L. under laboratory conditions. Essential oils from Pogostemon cablin proved to be the most efficient at a lethal dose of 3 µg/fly after topical application. Eight oils (P. roseum, O. vulgare, O. compactum, M. pulegium, O. basilicum, O. majorana, T. vulgaris and P. graveolens) were lethal in doses ranging from 10 to 20 µg (10, 13, 13, 13, 15, 17, 18 and 19 µg/fly… Expand

Insecticidal Activity of Plant Oils, Bacterial Endotoxins and their Combinations against Musca domestica L.
TLDR
The analysis of the tested oils indicated the dominance of several terpene compounds which are documented for their biological activities against insect pests, and the findings of the present study may encourage conducting of further studies in order to test efficacy of such combinations under practical field conditions.

Insecticidal Evaluation of essential oils of Citrus sinensis L. (Myrtales: Myrtaceae) against housefly, Musca domestica L. (Diptera: Muscidae)
TLDR
Significant activity of C. sinensis essential oil against larvae and pupae of housefly, pave the way for its use as eco-friendly housefly control measure. Expand
Insecticidal activity of Jatropha curcas extracts against housefly, Musca domestica
TLDR
The hexane and ether extracts of leaves, bark and roots of Jatropha curcas were screened for their toxicity against different developmental stages of housefly and revealed the presence of trans-phytol, squalene, phytol and nonadecanone as major components that could be attributed for insecticidal activity of J. curcas extracts. Expand
Efficacy of Origanum vulgare essential oil and carvacrol against the housefly, Musca domestica L. (Diptera: Muscidae)
TLDR
Origanum vulgare essential oil and carvacrol have significant toxicity to the housefly and are potential insecticides for housefly control. Expand
Insecticidal efficacy of some essential oils against adults of Musca domestica L. (Diptera: Muscidae)
TLDR
Results and literature data suggest that the aforesaid plant products could be promising as contact insecticides against adults M. domestica by the contact of insects with the residues of EOs at the bottom of glass cups. Expand
Larvicide and insecticide activity of the essential oil of Ocimum sanctum var. cubensis in the control of Musca domestica (Linnaeus, 1758), under laboratory conditions
TLDR
The objective of this work was to evaluate the larvicidal and insecticidal efficacy of the essential oil of Ocimum sanctum var. Expand
