Toxicity and protectant potential of Linalool's (Monoterpenoid) against Sitophilus zeamais Motschulsky (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) Infestation in Stored Maize

Article in Press

The increasing resistance of pests to conventional pesticides, coupled with their high cost and associated health risks, has led to a growing demand for natural alternatives. This study investigated the efficacy of Linalool, a natural monoterpene, in managing maize weevil, Sitophilus zeamais, on stored maize grains. We assessed the effects of Linalool on adult mortality, F1 progeny, weight loss, and damage to maize grain...

Do non-diapausing insects respond to different photoperiods: Spodoptera littoralis?

Article in Press

Photoperiod is a great factor in determining the developmental pattern (continued development vs. suspended development, i.e, diapause) of many insect pests. The cotton leaf worm, Spodoptera littoralis (Boisd.) is non-diapaused insect. Knowledge about how developmental pathway of S. littoralis responds to photoperiod is necessary for mass rearing of the pest and its parasitoids and may suggest new control management. The...

Entomological and Transmission Risk Indices of Bancroftian Filariasis Vectors after Community wide Long lasting Insecticide-treated bed net (LLIN) Intervention trials in Ebonyi State, Nigeria

Article in Press

Bancroftian filariasis in Nigeria is endemic with 22.1% of the population at risk of infection. The main mosquito genera implicated with the transmission are Anopheles and Culex. To compare the infectivity rates and transmission potentials after long - lasting insecticide - treated bed net (LLIN) intervention, we conducted study on the vectors between the high transmission (rainy) and the low transmission (dry) seasons....
