The antifeedant activities to determine the efficacies of hexane, ethyl acetate, chloroform and methanol extracts Pongamia glabra, Annona squamosa, Parthenium hysterophorus, Melia azedarach, Lantana camera, Murraya koenigii, Ipomia cornea, Emblica officinals against brinjal fruit borer, Leucinodes orbonalis were carried out. The maximum larvae mortality was found in the ethyl acetate followed by methanol, chloroform and hexane extract of A. squamosa with LD50 values of 1.51, 2.44, 2.68, and 4.86 ppm against L. orbonalis. Our result suggested that the ethyl acetate of A. squmosa leaf extract was an excellent antifeedant potential in controlling pest management programme.
