Application of crude leaf extracts of pineapple in pest control of field collected insects

Author(s):

Dr. Ashutosh Tripathi

Abstract:

The study focuses on Sugar-Apple (Annona squamosa), a plant found in tropical regions worldwide. Annona squamosa leaves contain an organic compound called borneol, which exhibits insecticidal properties. The research aims to investigate the effectiveness of Annona squamosa leaf extract as an insecticide. The study's findings are expected to contribute valuable information for the development of biological insecticides within the field of environmental health. Additionally, this bioinsecticide could potentially play a role in preventing infectious diseases transmitted through contaminated food, insect bites, and reducing allergic reactions caused by insect exposure.
