Assessment of Different Plant Extracts for Their Repellency Against Red Pumpkin Beetle (Aulacophora foveicollis (lucas) Attacking Muskmelon (Cucummis melo L.) Crop

Said Mir Khan and Muhammad Wasim

Results reveal that neem extract in benzene was most effective repellent of red pumpkin beetle, followed by Bakain extract in benzene. These two extracts were found non-significantly different from each other. Hermal extract in ethanol was found significantly least effective, followed by Hermal extract in benzene, Bakain and Neem extracts in ethanol. All of these plants extracts were found significantly effective in the repellency of red pumpkin beetles compared to control.
