The Efficacy Of Selected Endemic Plants For The Management Of Dermestes Maculatus (degeer, 1774), (coleoptera: Dermestidae) Beetle Larvae In Dried
Seeds of Alligator pepper (Aframomum melegueta, Schumann) and African nutmeg (Monodora myristica, Gaertn) and pods of Aridan fruits (Tetrapleura tetraptera, Schumach and Thonn), were ground separately into powder and each tested for their efficacy for the management of the Dermestes maculatus (Degeer) larvae in dried African catfish (Clarias gariepinus, Burchell). Fifty grams (50g) of the three plant powders were mixed (1:1:1) to also form a fourth treatment for trial against the beetle larvae. Different concentrations of plant powders of 0, 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10g/20g of dried fish (which corresponded to 0%,10%,20%,30%,40% and 50% w/w) were tested against twenty uniformly age (0-96hrs old) beetDownloadViews: 98
