Abstract

This study was carried out to find the effect of some commonly present plant products on termite species (Heterotermis indicola) which are a major threat worldwide. Three different concentrations (20%, 10%, 5%) of various solutions consisting of garlic, Neem and tobacco was used in hot and cold water. Hot and cold water results showed that a high concentration treatment of the garlic (20%) solution caused 100% mortality after 48 hours, but in the case of the tobacco concentration (20%) of the solution in only cold water resulted in 100% mortality. As the concentration become lower, the efficiency becomes slower. 100% mortality in the 10% & 5% solutions of garlic and tobacco occurred in different days. In case of Neem, both hot and cold water was found less effective as compared to garlic and tobacco. The mortality occurred using Neem was significantly less than garlic and tobacco.
