Abstract


Studies were carried out to determine the toxicidal potentials of leaf-extracts of Azadiracta indica (Juss), Calotropis procera (Aiton), Ocimum basilicum (Lin.) and Argemone mexicana (Lin.) against various developmental stages of housefly, Musca domestica L) in the laboratory. Dipping and feeding methods were employed to evaluate the insecticidal potentials of the plant extracts. Five different concentrations (100ppm, 200ppm, 300 and 400ppm) of the extracts were used in both methods of bioassay tests. All the selected plant extracts were found to affect the pupation and emergence of adults (p<0.001). Pupal survival and adult emergence was observed to be inversely proportional to the increase in the concentration of the extracts applied in both methods.

Key words: Dipping method, Efficacy, Musca domestica, Plant extracts, Pupation
