Rodenticide Effects of Aegiceras corniculatum (Saging-saging) Leaf Crude Extract
The rodenticidal effects of the saging-saging leaf crude extract were evaluated under laboratory
testing. Methods: A total of 36 mice were used in this study. Each administered by the saging-saging leaf
extract at different concentration level of 50%, 75% and 100%. A commercial rodenticide is used as
positive control. Result: The obtained result revealed that the crude extract of 100% level concentration of
saging-saging caused mortality to the test animals. Conclusion: Therefore, saging-saging leaf crude
extract could be used as rodenticide under laboratory testing.
