Comparison of Insecticidal Activity of Three Essential Oil with a Synthetic Product

Authors(4) :-Abderrahmane Kassimi, Lahcen El Watik, Moumni Mohammed, Chaouki Hamid

To see the comparison of insecticidal activity of the essential oils (Kanuka, Ravintsara and Tea tree) on the aphid green alfalfa and the synthetic product, we conducted tests on these oils and the synthetic product Malyphos most used by farmers in our region. For this purpose, fields of green alfalfa parasitized by aphids were treated with different doses of this product and of these oils as a function of time. During the summer when there is a large number of aphids and after a controlled time we were determined the percentage mortality for this parasite versus time and dose of the product synthesis and of these oils. Comparison of the insecticidal activity between the product Malyphos and these essential oils has revealed the role of these natural extracts on the limitation of chemical insecticides and their possible use as naturalness without side effects on human health and the environment.
