Effect of the alcoholic extract of the seeds of the Sesbania sesban plant and Applaud's growth regulator in the complete phase control of the red flour beetle Tribolium castaneum (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae)

Abstract

The study dealt with the effect of the alcoholic extract of Sesbania sesban seeds and the growth regulator Applaud in controlling the full phase of the red flour beetle Tribolium castaneum, as the concentrations used for the alcoholic extract of Sesbania seeds were 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0%, and the lowest killing rate was 6.6% at a concentration of 0.5% And after 48 hours of treatment, while the highest killing rate reached 93.5% at a concentration of 2.0% after 48 hours of treatment compared with the control sample in which no killing rate occurred. As for the effect of the growth regulator in controlling the red flour beetle, the concentrations were 1000, 2000, 4000, 6000 ppm with the lowest killing rate of 0.0. % at a concentration of 1000 ppm after 48 hours of treatment, while the highest killing rate was 86.3% at a concentration of 6000 ppm after 48 hours of treatment compared to the control sample in which no killing rate occurred.
