ABSTRACT
The article discusses the results of a study that examined the aqueous and organic extracts of the spiderflower, Cleome arabica on its effects on the feeding and survival of larvae of the cotton leafworm, Spodoptera littoralis. The study showed that higher dose of Cleome arabica extracts provided antifeeding and phagostimulating activities against Spodoptera littoralis larvae. The most active was the methanol extract of siliquae.
