Abstract

Reduction in number of eggs treated with hexane and dichloromethane extracts of female air borne volatiles was less. Reduction in number of eggs treated with methanol extract of male air borne volatiles was lowest. These chemical components could be used as an alternative to synthetic pesticides to reduce oviposition and further damage.
