Abstract: Petroleum ether, CHCl3 and CH3OH extracts of the aerial parts of Abutilon hirtum (Lam.) Sweet were subjected to dose-mortality tests against adult beetles of Tribolium castaneum (Hbst.) and Lymnaea acuminata Lamarck under laboratory conditions. The Pet. ether extract offered mortality to T. castaneum and gave LD50 values 99.956, 89.910, 80.447 and 74.839 mg cm-2 after 12, 18, 24 and 30h of exposure respectively, and the CH3OH extract gave LD50 values 218.427, 215.647, 209.361, 205.431, 201.792 and 199.855 mg cm-2 after 6, 12, 18, 24, 30 and 36h of exposure respectively. While the CHCl3 extract didn’t offer mortality against T. castaneum. In case of L. acuminata, the CHCl3 and CH3OH extracts offered LC50 values 121.130, 112.784 and 110.369 ppm; and 66.323, 58.892 and 51.983 ppm both after 12, 18 and 24h of exposure respectively. The Pet. ether extract did not show mortality to L. acuminata up to 120 ppm.
