Toxicity and behavioral effects of nootkatone and two of its derivatives, 1,10-dihydronootkatone and tetrahydronootkatone, to Coptotermes formosanus Shiraki were investigated on workers from two different colonies by using topical application assays, repellency assays, and sand barrier assays. The acute toxicity of the nootkatones on workers from both colonies increased as the saturation of the molecule increased, but the difference was significant for only one colony. The results of the… 
Toxic Effects of 2-Deoxy-D-Galactose on Coptotermes formosanus (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) and Symbionts
TLDR
2deoxyGal caused dose-dependent termite mortality, taking on average 1 wk to begin killing workers, indicating that it may have promise as a delayed action toxin, which, if added to baits, could allow time after bait discovery for an entire colony to be affected.
Deterrent activity of (+)-nootkatone and its derivatives towards the peach potato aphid (Myzus persicae Sulzer)
TLDR
The deterrent effect of these compounds was relatively strong and stable, and was observed for at least 24 hours after treatment, i.e., until the end of experiment.
myo-Inositol and Phytate are Toxic to Formosan Subterranean Termites (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)
TLDR
Radiotracer feeding studies using myo-nositol[2-3H] with worker termites showed no metabolism after ingestion over a 2-d feeding period, ruling out metabolites responsible for the selective toxicity.
Effect of Orange Oil Extract on the Formosan Subterranean Termite (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)
TLDR
With a suitable method of application and in combination with other control practices, OOE can be effectively used for the control of subterranean termites.
Isolation and Identification of Terpenoid Compound from Vetiver Grass-Root (Vetiveria zizanioides Stapf) as a Repellent against Termite (Cyrptotermes sp.) through Bioactivity Assay
TLDR
The bioactivity showed that an isolated compound has acted as a repellent against termite (Cryptotermes sp.) with % attractive (0.025 %) and attractiveness index (AI) (-0.039).
A Formulation to Encapsulate Nootkatone for Tick Control
TLDR
The encapsulation of nootkatone improved toxicity for tick control, reduced nootKatone volatility, and reduced plant phytotoxicity.
Effects of White Mulberry (Morus alba) Heartwood Extract Against Reticulitermes flavipes (Blattodea: Rhinotermitidae)
TLDR
It is indicated that heartwood extract from white mulberry have antitermitic properties and might be potentially valuable in the development of environmentally benign termiticides.
Harmonia axyridis adults avoid catnip and grapefruit-derived terpenoids in laboratory bioassays
TLDR
The avoidance behaviour of the multicolored Asian lady beetle, Harmonia axyridis, when adults were exposed to terpenoids derived from catnip oil and grapefruit seed may provide clues to pushing them away from man-made structures and pulling them into traps with attractants or pheromones in the fall season.

Toxicity of monoterpenoids and other natural products to the Formosan subterranean termite (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)
TLDR
Monoterpenoid alcohols, particularly eugenol, were the most effective as termiticides against C. formosanus and was also more effective as a fumigant than citral and geraniol.
Behavioural effects of a neem insecticide on Coptotermes formosanus (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae).
TLDR
The effects of a commercial insecticide formulation (Margosan‐O) containing 0.3% azadirachtin and 14% neem oil on orientation, tunnelling, and feeding behaviour of the Formosan subterranean termite, Coptotermes formosanus, are investigated.
Comparative effects of vetiver oil, nootkatone and disodium octaborate tetrahydrate on Coptotermes formosanus and its symbiotic fauna.
TLDR
Vetiver oil and especially nootkatone affected Formosan subterranean termites and their protozoa, acting as arrestants, repellents and feeding deterrents, and represent a promising natural alternative for the control of this invasive pest.
Insecticide Susceptibility in Coptotermes formosanus and Reticulitermes virginicus (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)
TLDR
Findings indicate substantial inter-colonies and intra-colony differences in susceptibility to insecticides.
Toxicity, repellency, and horizontal transmission of fipronil in the formosan subterranean termite (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae).
TLDR
In topical application assays, fipronil was highly effective against both workers and soldiers at very low doses, and there was no significant horizontal transmission of fipronsil from treated workers to untreated soldiers.
Petuniolides, Natural Insecticides fromPetunia parodii, Are Antagonists of GABAaReceptors
TLDR
Both petuniolide C and a natural analog, pet uniolide D, were shown to be weak ligands of the GABAareceptor, and picrotoxinin in combination had an additive effect on locust mortality.
Antifeedant discrimination thresholds for two populations of western corn rootworm
TLDR
Be Beetles were more sensitive to hydrastine and strychnine in combination with L‐alanine, a general phagostimulant of less potency than cucurbitacin B.
Silphinene Sesquiterpenes as Model Insect Antifeedants
TLDR
The toxicity of these compounds was species-dependent and did not correlate with their antifeedant effect, but compound 3 and thymol were effective antifeingants against all species tested except S. littoralis.
Profenofos residues in wild fish from cotton-growing areas of New South Wales, Australia.
TLDR
Recovery in creeks was generally more rapid than in lagoons, and acetylcholinesterase inhibition was a useful indicator of profenofos exposure within a season, particularly if linked with residue measurements.
Comparison of tunneling responses into insecticide-treated soil by field populations and laboratory groups of subterranean termites (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)
TLDR
The overall tunneling behavior exhibited by field populations into insecticide- treated soil is essentially the same as that of laboratory groups of 80 foragers, but in some instances the threshold concentrations recorded from field populations were higher than those observed from laboratory groups.
