Heavy use of chemical pesticides had brought many problems such as resistant of the target insects and also harms human and animal health. Myco-biocontrol offers an attractive alternative to the use of chemical pesticides. Myco-biocontrol naturally occurred in the environment and also less damaging to human and animal. Entomopathogenic fungi can be...

This is prospective case-control study of more than 18 months performed to assess the effectiveness of maggot debridement therapy (MDT) with the sterile larvae of Lucilia cuprina (a tropical blowfly maggot) for the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers. Literature thus far has only reported results with the temperate maggot, Lucilia sericata. This stud...

Three new techniques of sterilising maggots of Lucilia cuprina for the purpose of debriding intractable wounds were studied. These techniques were utilisation of ultra-violet C (UVC) and maggot sterilisation with disinfectants. The status of sterility was checked on nutrient agar and blood agar and confirmed with staining. The indicators for the ef...

The impact of invasive species attacking economically important crops is often unpredictable, which is why information needs to be provided at the earliest stage of the attack. This is an incidence report of the fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda (J.E. Smith, 1797) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae), a new invasive species attacking maize in Malaysia. We f...
Article
The fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae), is a new invasive alien species attacking corn in Malaysia. This aggressive pest has been recorded attacking more than 350 plant species including our most important staple namely rice. Being relatively new to this region, detailed information of this pest and their potential local...

Sayuran tradisional mempunyai rasa yang istimewa dan kaya dengan nutrien tambahan dimana dapat menambah pelbagai mikronutrien penting dalam diet seharian. Ini menjadikan ia s...
Article
The survival of a mosquito is the most important aspect that affects its ability as a pathogen transmitting vector, such as Aedes albopictus, which is a vector of chikungunya and dengue. Knowledge on mosquito life demographics is important in providing a foundation for a successful vector control programme. In this study, two strains of Ae. albopic...
Article
Chikungunya fever, an Aedes borne viral disease, is becoming a serious public health concern today since the first reported outbreak in Port Klang in 1998/99. Recently, more outbreaks were reported in Malaysia. Entomological investigations were conducted in Chikungunya virus cases localities in Peninsular Malaysia which cover Johor, Negeri Sembilan...

Background: The diversity of stingless bees in Peninsular Malaysia was last studied in 1990. Since there has been much change in agriculture and forest ecosystems due to development and climatic change, the need for a restudy has become necessary. In 2012, stingless bees had become phenomena in Peninsular Malaysia. There is evidence that stingless...
Article
Temperature is often identified as the main environmental factor affecting the growth of mosquito population. It is important to study the effect of temperature on the life parameters of Aedes albopictus in the local environment using the local strain, in order to understand more on the biology of the mosquito which will directly affect the transmi...
Article
Full-text available
Entomological surveillance was conducted in order to determine the abundance and to evaluate any changes of biological vectors or ecology, especially in the dengue outbreak areas. The abundance and breeding preference of Aedes albopictus and Aedes aegypti were conducted in selected dengue outbreak localities in three states of peninsular Malaysia n...

Entomophatogenic nematode is known as one of the biological control in agricultural practices; however the usage and study in Malaysia are still lacking compared to other countries. Entomopathogenic nematodes (EPN) have been used widely to control many pest insects such as Lepidopteran like Spodoptera sp and Coleopteran like Tenebrio sp. EPN which...

Plant extracts, particularly botanical repellants have gained prominence because of their potential for plant protection against pests. However, only a few plants had been utilized as botanical repellants locally in Malaysia. Hence, the need to look for new botanical pesticides derived from local plants. Kaempferia galanga, locally known as ‘cekur’...

Plant extracts, particularly botanical pesticides have gained prominence because of their potential for plant protection against pests. Andrographis paniculata Nees., locally known as ‘hempedu bumi’ extracts were evaluated against the larvae of diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella. Antifeedant activity of ethanol and water extracts of A. paniculat...

Maggot therapy is known to help debriding wound faster and less painful than the conventional method. It was believed that the maggots not only consume necrotic tissues, but also secrete anti-bacterial agent(s) that can prevent and stop infection from spreading to other areas. Since some patients are deterred by maggot therapy other methods without...
