Abstract
Plant extracts from the neem tree can be applied as a bioinsecticidal compound in ‘attract-and-kill’ co-formulations to control soildwelling insect pests. Since insects are attracted to the bioinsecticide, the attract-and-kill approach benefits from a reduced dose of insecticide needed. Here, we demonstrate that a powdery neem seed kernel extract in combination with corn starch significantly enhances the drying survival of coencapsulated CO2-releasing Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Additionally, an increased content of the neem extract was shown to slow down the relative release of azadirachtin A. Both findings are of high relevance for the development of formulations in the field of biological pest control.
