The effects of azadirachtin on insect development are related to reducing hemolymphatic levels of ecdysteroids, which are directly involved in development and reproduction (rembold 1989) some recent investigations have focused on the impact of azadirachtin on the sand fly vectors of leishmaniases. Of azadirachtin, including effects on insect reproduction, direct and secondary antifeedancy, and the physiological effects measured as growth reduction, increased mortality and abnormal and delayed moults. Azadirachtin (aza) is the principal insecticidal compound occurring in the oil of neem [azadirachta indica (juss)] seedalthough many studies have been published (schmutterer 1990) regarding the effects of aza on herbivorous insects, little is known of the impact of this compound on the natural enemies of herbivores.
More than 60 insect pests may be affected by azadirachtin including aphids, beetles, caterpillars, lace bugs, leafhoppers, leafminers, mealybugs, psyllids, thrips and whiteflies ( read the label of the specific product you are using before application .

Lethal and sublethal effects of azadirachtin on the bumblebee bombus terrestris (hymenoptera: apidae) due to their range of detrimental effects caused in insects.
Azadirachtin, a chemical compound belonging to the limonoid group, is a secondary metabolite present in neem seeds it is a highly oxidized tetranortriterpenoid which boasts a plethora of oxygen-bearing functional groups, including an enol ether , acetal, hemiacetal , tetra-substituted epoxide and a variety of carboxylic esters. Azadirachtin, a component of neem oil, is moderately toxic to fish and other aquatic animals it is important to remember that insects must eat the treated plant to be killed therefore, bees and other pollinators are not likely to be harmed. Azadirachtin is a bio -rational insecticide used as an antifeedant and growth disruption agent against many insect species however, recent studies have shown that there is a potential risk of this compound. In regard to the pesticidal usage of cold pressed neem oil the epa further indicated that it will not cause any harmful environmental effects, nor cause adverse effects to mammals, birds, fish and aquatic invertebrates, other non-target insects, or plants. Response in lab mammals a recent study performed by srivastava et al examined the possibility of toxic effects of azadirachtin in rats that were fed the compound as a part of the standard diet 6 two generations of rats were fed either 5, 25 or 50 mg of azadirachtin per kg of body weight 6 after 21 days of observations for both generations of rats, the researchers concluded that the.
The effect of some biorational insecticides on cotton aphid azadirachtin, and pymetrozine bioassay method was spraying pesticide on insects in green house. Insect growth regulating effects of neem extract and azadirachtin on aphids (1994), insect growth regulating effects of neem extract and azadirachtin on aphids. Insects locusta migratoria effects of azadirachtin on the regulation of midgut peristalsis by the s tomatogastric nervous system in locusta migrator ia. On the pesticidal effect of azadirachtin have been carried out mostly on insects and there are only few works against the snail species reference  have tested azadirachtin at concentration of 1% on herbivorous land snail arianta.
Many investigations have been conducted on the antifeedant effects, growth inhibition and abnormal development in various insects caused by neem seed extracts and azadirachtin (cf schmutterer and ascher, 1984. Horticultural entomology effects of azadirachtin, abamectin, and spinosad on sweetpotato whiteﬂy (homoptera: aleyrodidae) on tomato plants under laboratory and greenhouse conditions in the humid tropics. Although, azadirachtin is an important component of neem oil, the other less studied ingredients seem to have a positive synergistic effect when it comes to effecting the behavior, effectiveness and mortality of plant pests[/font. One of the first active ingredients isolated from neem, azadirachtin has proved to be the tree's main agent for battling insects it appears to cause some 90 percent of the effect on most pests.
Insects then will not molt, mutagenic effects technical azadirachtin was evaluated for the potential to cause gene mutations in the s typhimurium strains at any. Effects on other animals (nontarget species): azadirachtin is relatively harmless to spiders, butterflies, and insects such as bees that pollinate crops and trees, ladybugs that consume aphids, and wasps that act as parasites on various crop pests this is because neem products must be ingested to be effective. In insect groups used to study azadirachtin effects on the histol- ogy of the ovaries and testes, females were treated with 10 µl of 25 ppm, 10 days before their oviposition period (mid-preoviposition.
