Cockroach (Periplaneta americana) is a household pest, which transmit disease in the environment. [...] Key Result Mortality of P. americana was sparingly recorded in treatment with the lowest concentration of the leaf extract after a short period of exposure (6 hrs). However, the maximum Mortality rate was recorded after exposure of the test species to the highest concentration of leaf extract. The survivals and mortality rate were very highly significant at 0.001% level of confidence.Expand
