Abstract: Azadirachtin (AZA), a plant allelochemical, is used against pest organisms and Lepidopteran species are quite sensitive to this substance. In this study, the developmental effects of AZA on model insect and greater wax moth, Galleria mellonella L. (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) larvae via force feeding method were investigated. To investigate the effects of different doses of pure AZA (0.2 - 5 µg/larva), seventh instar larvae were fed by a force feeding method. The results showed that all doses of AZA caused lethal and sublethal effects on the biological parameters of G. mellonella. Larval developmental time increased while that of pupa did not change depending on the increasing doses of AZA. In addition, adult longevity, and weights of pupae and adults decreased at all AZA doses in a dose-dependent manner. In conclusion, this study, using G. mellonella as a model organism, showed that AZA has insecticidal activity and causes adverse effects on the life history traits of Lepidopteran pest insects.
