Abstract

The increased use of pesticides in the control of vector pests has raised some concern over the adverse effect of these chemicals on humans, domestic animals, and their environment. This research was undertaken to harness the beneficial use of dried Chromolaena odorata (Siam weed) leaves to control beans weevil (Acanthoscelides obtectus) in the storage system. The experimental research method was a complete randomized design with five (5) treatments replicated four times given a total of twenty plates.  Chromolaena odorata leaves and powders were prepared at a ratio of 1:1. The result of the study revealed higher mortality of bean weevils after seven (7) days in group A with the highest mortality rate obtained from Treatment four (4) with ten (150) grams of dried ground Chromolaena odorata leaves and dust insecticide. Based on this study, beans farmers and traders could use Chromolaena odorata to control beans weevils in their storage area, instead of synthetic insecticide.
