ABSTRACT

The exposure of solitary and gregary adult females during oviposition period to the contaminated sand of ovipositing sites with their egg pods extracts in hexane or ethanol reduced the number of egg pods, laid eggs, hatching percent and caused malformed eggs and froth. The incubation period of deposited eggs of treated females and the nymphal duration were longer than untreated ones. Therefore, the offspring of treated females were abnormal in both shape, weight and growth.
