The use of pesticides is becoming an indispensable technique in most agricultural practices, regardless of the level of development of the country. Currently, the pesticides used are often less toxic and more specific and are based on insect physiology. Recent studies indicate that pesticide intoxication induces oxidative stress. This work aims to study the neurobehavioral consequences of the administration of two insecticides currently widely used in agriculture: spirotetramat (an inhibitor of lipid synthesis in insects) and the ethanolic extract of Citrullus colocynthis (a plant endemic to the Algerian Sahara) and the ethanolic extract of Cleome arabica (Capparidaceae) The different behavioral tests (elevated cross maze, open fields and forced swimming) show that the have a significant impact on the degree of anxiety of rodents.These products significantly influence the biochemical parameters (blood sugar, cholesterol, triglycerides, urea, creatinine), the hormone Adreno CorticoTropic Hormone, acetylcholine esterase, immune parameters and organ weight.
