The experiments were set up to investigate the settling and ovipositional deterrent effects of crude leaf extracts of six indigenous plants viz., amaltas (Cassia fistula), datura (Datura alba), neem (Azadirachta indica), niazboo (Ocimum basilicum), yellow kaner (Thevetia
peruviana) and safeda (Eucalyptus camaldulensis) against the peach fruit fly, Bactrocera zonata (Saunders), at 2% concentration in a free choice bioassays.
(Annonaceae), a plant resistant to snails and the Global Invasive Species Programmee (IUCN, 2010) suggests the use of the fruit of Thevetia
peruviana (Pers.) Schum or yellow oleander, which also have action against the African snail, although it should be considered the toxicity of this plant for humans (Teixeira, Mazutti, Gontijo, Silva, & Ogawa, 2013).

Deliberate ingestion of oleander seeds--Common oleander (Nerium oleander) and Yellow oleander (Thevetia
peruviana)--is a popular method of self-harm in South Asia (1).
Special attention should be given in medicinal plants such as Argemone mexicana, Chenopodium ambrosioides, and Thevetia
Two studies from Northern Sri Lanka reported Thevetia
peruviana (yellow Oleander) as the commonest plant poison (17% of cases) and it was associated with a case fatality rate of 6-7% .
