The traditional pest control strategies led the world to the era of pesticide contaminated food, air and water. The main focus of the scientific community is to develop ecofriendly, biodegradable and safer to mankind chemicals for pest control. This search results in exploration of plants for their vast phytochemical resources. The present study forms a hypothesis of testing active ingredients of an economic medicinal plant, Acacia auriculiformis, against the melon fruit fly, Bactrocera cucurbitae. The results concluded the promising effect of fractions of ethyl acetate extract against the insect pest as they pronouncedly reduce the emergence, enhanced the mortality and decrease the pupal weight of pest with treatments. The chemical characterization of the active ingredients with different spectroscopic techniques (FTIR, NMR, LC-MS) indicate presence of flavonoids as the major portion of the fractions.
