The oils of six plants viz.; clove; Eugenia aromatic., basil; Ocimum basillicum L., thyme; Thymus vulgaris L., blue gum; Eucalyptus spp., spearmint; Minth viridis L., Lemongrass oil; Cymbopogon citrates Hort. And six aromatic fragments namely; methyl salicylate, eugenol, menthol, thymol, camphor and naphthalene were tested against Acheroia gresilla F. Paradicholorbenzene, acetic and formic acids were used as check and the LC50s were determined against the last larval instar. Results revealed that methyl salicylate, formic acid, clove and basil oils were highly effective.
