Abstract

Jatropha curcas check for this species in other resources oil and its toxic fraction were evaluated at different dilutions i.e., 1%,5%,10%,20% against Microcerotermes beesoni check for this species in other resources , the test termite. The maximum wood protection against termites of both the treatments were obtained at their highest concentration i.e. 20%. The weight loss ranged from 18.77% to 48.80% at concentrations of 20% to 1% of Jatropha curcas oil formulation. The protection afforded by toxic fraction was enhanced, with the % weight loss ranging from 10.48 to 35.19. However, all the treatments proved to be effective over the control (50.84%).
