Abstract: 

Microcerotermes diversus (Silvestri) (Isoptera: Termitidae) is a major species of termites that attacks cellulosic materials and is an economically important pest, damaging buildings in Khuzestan Province (Iran). In the last decade, use of nanotechnology for the production nanocapsules made from various materials, resulting in reduction of the contained chemicals. Neonicotinoids, such as imidacloprid, are a group of chemical compounds that have recently been introduced for use in pest control programs. In the present study the evaluating effectiveness of ethyl cellulose-based nanocapsules containing imidacloprid and ethyl cellulose-based nanocapsules without imidacloprid has been performed for the first time. The effects of ethyl cellulose-based nanocapsules without imidacloprid and those containing 50, 100, 500 or 1000 ppm imidacloprid were evaluated against M. diversus. The ethyl cellulose in this formulation did not induce lethal effects against the termite and showed feeding attractancy. Treated filter papers with this formulation caused a gradual increase in mortality during the 14-day trial. Our results suggest that ethyl cellulose-based nanocapsules containing imidacloprid could be an effective termiticide formulation.
