Abstract

Evaluation of the efficiency and action of pyrolegnous acid from three arboreous species on Spodoptera frugiperda (J.E. Smith) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae).

Abstract

The effects of pyrolegnous acids obtained from Eucalyptus grandis, Melia azedarach and Pinus caribaea on S. frugiperda were studied under laboratory conditions (25±2°C, 70±10% relative humidity, and 14-h photoperiod). The pyrolegnous acids had no insecticidal effects on S. frugiperda.
