Abstract: This study evaluates termiticidal potential of non-edible oil seedcakes (jatropha, karanja, neem and mahua) and their crude active components (phorbol esters, karanjin, saponins and azadirachtin) in vitro and in vivo. Cold water extracts of neem cake showed better results than hot water extracts of same cake and caused 100% mortality of termites in 72 h. Crude karanjin extract induced 83.3% mortality after 2 h in petriplate (diam, 4.5 cm) and 100% after 4 h in petriplates (diam, 9.5 cm). In vivo, combination of all cakes was most effective with 1.59% weight loss.
