The chloroform and methanolic extracts of Smilax zeylanica L. were assessed for mortality against the adults of flat grain beetle, Cryptolestes pusillus (Schon.) under laboratory conditions by the surface film method. The methanolic extracts caused significantly high (p < 0.001) mortalities than the chloroform extracts. The calculated LD 50 values of the chloroform extracts of S. zeylanica on C. pusillus were 71.20, 67.06 and 62.22 μg/cm 2 for leaf; 14.49, 11.41 and 7.9 μg/cm 2 for stem; anddoi:10.3329/jbas.v34i2.6868 fatcat:s5lt43e3kvdqtikgblomeb3bje
