Management of Plodia interpunctella (hübner) [Lepidoptera: pyralidae] using ethanolic oil extract of Plumbago zeylanica (LINN.)

This study investigated the insecticidal effects of ethanolic oil extract of Plumbago zeylanica against Plodia interpunctella infestation in stored maize grains. Oils from the plant were administered at 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25% concentrations to maize grains inside plastic containers. The treated samples were air-dried for 3 h. The three developmental stages of the moth (egg, larval and adult) were separately introduced...
